|The cave is considered a national natural monument.|
|In 1995 it also became one of the sites of the world heritage.|
|The cave is located in the eastern part of Slovakia, not far from my hometown. It is a great system of many caverns on various different levels, which was made by now quite tiny river Bodva. Not all of the cave is accessible to the public, but the parts that are are definitely worth it. There are stalactites, stalagmites, stalagnates and a lot of other rock shapes, colonies of various species of bats and a couple of archaeological and historical relics.|
The permission to take photographs costs more than a single person entry fee, so I gave that up, but there are lots of interesting photographs online (here)
|Of course, there are rules when visiting caves.|
|The entrance to the cave is in the building |
in the foyer of which there are maps and interesting
posters as well as some specimens from the cave.
