Krásnohorská cave Heliktit
In front of the cave entrance visitors dress up a cave gear. At the beginning visitors are instructed accordingly. And can go on, enjoy adventure and get new knowledge.

We would like to invite you to a visit of the Krásnohorská Cave, a unique karst formation, which is registered in The World Heritage List (UNESCO). A tour through the cave is accessible for visitors by a built up tourist route and it is not lit. You can enter it only with a guide as a small group equipped with caving suites, helmets and headlights.
   The route leads to the Dripstone of Rožňava Cavers – the giant column 34 m high. Currently, it is listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the highest sinter column in the world. Although several higher columns were already found, it is a monumental nature creation rare in caves in temperate climate zone. You will pass 450 m long route built up by using wooden footbridges lying above an underground stream, which flows through the main cave passage. Besides, you will climb several ladders and cross two rope traverses hanging above lakes. It is not difficult and visitors enjoy it very much.
   The route is suitable almost for every healthy person. Visitors from 6 to 76 years old have already passed it. Children under 15 can enter the cave only accompanied with parents. As the route is characteristic by a broken terrain it’s good to have hiking shoes. If you do not have suitable shoes we can borrow you gum boots for 20,- Slovak crowns
(Sk). Visitors meet the guide in the office (see the map below) by the guest-house Jozefína in Krásnohorská Dlhá Lúka village. After registration and getting necessary equipment a group walks about 1 km to the cave entrance. The visit lasts approx. 2 and 1/2 hours. During high season (15.6. – 15.9.), visiting times are at 9 a.m., 11,30 a.m. and 2 p.m. During other months, it is necessary to book the visit by phone or via e-mail. Due to high interest we recommend to book your visit during summer, too. Entrance fees are presented in the Price List.
