Interesting if u have not seen crystal formations before. I am a little spoilt as I have visited several magnificent caves around the world. If your heading down to the famous lakes, call in and visit the caves. There is actually only one cave open to the puplic. Cost of entry is 50kuna for a guided tour. Very nice surrounding... More

Very kind guide (in English only). The place is not worth the visit unless you've never been in a cave

The guide was very kind and helpful. He was very friendly and pointed out extra things along the way that he doesn't normally show. He also continued our tour 15 minutes past closing time.

We decided to check this cave out after seeing signs on our way out of the Plitvice Lakes area. Easy to find. There is a parking lot up at the top of the road, but you can continue down the road where there may be a couple spaces available. Porta potties are set up just off of the lower parking... More

We decided to visit here at the last minute and definitely weren't disappointed. In early October it is quiet; we joined another family who had already started. The guide was super friendly - informative and witty. His description of how his colleague got stuck in a narrow part of the cave structure further in (after the public part) was seriously... More

We were able to appreciate the cave even more with his... More

Really enjoyed visiting the caves! The tour is short but educational and our guide was very well spoken and had great English. The caves are definitely worth a visit if your staying over at the lakes for more than 1 day.
