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.
