The Krásnohorská cave is a fluvio-karst cave with a whole year underground stream. It means the cave represents a terminal part of the Buzgó underground stream cave system and it was predominantly created by a dissolvent activity of this water flow in dolomites and limestones. Nowadays, we know 1556 m of this cave system, of which 450 m are open to public. A route leads to the Hall of Giants from where visitors are coming the same way back.The main part of the tourist route through the cave is built up above an underground stream or near to it. At some places (the Big Mount, the Abonyi Dome and the Hall of Giants) the route crosses a broken terrain. 

  The route is built up without any harmful intervention to morphology of cave spaces and it is not lit. Terrain barriers are crossed by wooden footbridges, rope traverses and ladders. Where it is possible, the route leads through a natural cave terrain. The route is suitable almost for every healthy person. Children up to 8 years are taken to the cave only exceptionally, if there is one extra guide taking care of such child and only accompanied by a parent, of course. Older children mostly do not have problems. However, certain mobility is required. Overweight people should therefore consider a visit well. Limiting are also narrow places on the route.

What to see and enjoy during a visit.

The cave entrance is situated approximately 800 m far from the guest-house Jozefína. A natural wal- king trail with several information boards starts in the middle of the village and leads to the cave. It will give you information about caves in the Slovak Karst, which are listed in the World Heritage. The trail crosses Čremošná stream and runs along a water mill, which was some time ago driven by its water flow. During winter, water from the stream was mixed by 9 °C warm water from a cave spring in order water does not freeze.  Today’s cave entrance is located close to a natural entrance - cave resurgence (a spring of under- ground stream). Cavers reached open cave underground on July 18, 1964 after decreasing the water level in the resurgence by 2 m. This first natural entrance was situated in the middle of the picture.

On the way to the cave, different remarkable things are to be seen. By the mill we enter an area of the Slovak Karst National Park. We keep going a forest trail on the foot of the Silická Plateau. It is a very pleasant walk, especially in spring. The forest is covered by flowers of different colors. After 10 minutes walk we come to a chapel of Virgin Mary. The first note in the chronicle from the year 1748 says about a wooden chapel built up near a side cave spring as a monument to a revelation of Virgin Mary to two girls, which burned down and was rebuilt again. Current look of the chapel was made by local wood-carvers in 2000. Local church- goers organize every year on the first Sunday after 15th July a procession there. You can enjoy one of the most beautiful lookouts to the Krásna Hôrka castle from that place. This was the mail impulse why original name of the cave – Buzgó was renamed to the Krásnohorská Cave.

The distance from the chapel to the cave is only 80 m. This parts leads along unique well-preserved tufa deposit, created from saturated waters of Buzgó resurgence. It has a form of  fan-like little lakes with radius of approx. 60 m. Tufas are fresh-water limestones, which precipitates from cave water due to decrease of CO2 concentration. Also plants and mosses help.
  Tufas were often used as building material; therefore most tufa bodies were destroyed by mining. This one is the only in the Slovak Karst, which remained preserved. It is still in progress. New crust is added up every year.

Nowadays, we are entering the cave through 80 m long artificial entrance, which was made by miners in 1982. It is already the second artificial entrance. It is also useful during floods as high water can leave the cave through this free corridor easily. During exploration works in the resurgence water level was artificially decreased by 2 m what caused elimination of several siphons as well.

The main part of the tourist route through the cave is built up from wooden footbridges above water. Step by step visitors gain more experience and balance; sometimes they help themselves by hands.  At the beginning of the route we can also see interesting egutational towers, which are formed by water dropping down on clay sedi- ments. Sinter formations (up to 97 % CaCO3) with clay appearance belong to interesting cave fillings in the entering part of the cave, too. Its formation is not clear enough, yet. It is probably related to an influence of external air, which causes such premature precipitation of dissolved limestone.

Lakes in the cave are crossed by rope traverses. Even if it seems difficult for most visitors nobody has a problem to get over this obstacle. It is important to set out bravely with long steps. 
  As ropes are extremely exposed when tightened horizontally, there can be only one person crossing the rope at the same time. However, there is no matter for concerns. Potential bath in the cave lake could be an interesting experience as well. Until now, only one visitor had a bath in the lake and finished the whole route anyway.

After the First Lake, the cave develops to a high passage named the Great Canyon. Although it is imposing horizontal corridor visitors have to cross several obstacles. The main barrier is a roof fall the Great Mount, 8 m high. Not only you have to climb it up and down but you also have to pass through the narrowest place on the route. Slim people get through it easily others have to struggle little.

  The Great Canyon has an average height 12 m and is 180 m long. It is created in the rocks called guttenstein dolomites. That is also the reason why sinter decoration is missing there. The passage is genetically interesting as it was created at an important tectonic fault.

Suddenly it seems as if we were in other cave. After passing through a long passage we are entering a great open space called the Abonyi Dome. This room is 40 m high and spreads over an area 30 x 40 m. Also dripstones and interesting forms of coralloids appear. Creation of these unique cauliflower-like coralloides is connected with manganese minerals – todorokites, which in the Abonyi Dome form up to 10 cm wide layers. However, little climbing is waiting on the way further.  In order to get on the bottom of the dome we have to climb down little wall using a chain. We then creep under huge fallen boulder and come to another rope traverse, which crosses the Second Lake with beautiful green and deep water. Little side inflow enters the lake on the right. This flow is bringing here water up from the surface of the Silická Plateau, located 250 m above that place. The second traverse is crossing the lake in the middle not touching the wall but experiences from the first traverse help us to cross it easily.
   The water stream behind the lake flows through a narrow crack and falls to the lake as a little cascade. It is an impressive place when water level is higher. A short passage leads to a ladder by which we climb up to the Hall of Giants.

The Hall of Giants is the largest space in the cave. It is named after big dripstones which due to unique conditions grow on this place. Present giant (the Dripstone of Rožňava Cavers) has grown up on the residues of its predecessors. Variability of sinter decoration forms found in this space is unusual. We can find there small coralloides, marvelous helictites, bigger several meters long stalactites and of course 32,6 m high Dripstone of Rožňava Cavers.
  This dripstone is
registered in the Guinness Book of Records as the highest sinter column in the world. However, it would be a great paradox if there would have been the highest dripstone in our temperate climate zone, because dripstones are growing faster in tropical karst. Even if higher dripstones have been found recently this one is a unique natural creation and there is no such in temperate climate zone.

  It weights approximately 2000 tons. In spite of that it started growing already in the last geologic era – Holocene, about 13 000 years ago. We know it from the age of the surface crust of its predecessor. The Dripstone of Rožňava Cavers must therefore be younger.  130 - 150 kg of new mass is added up yearly. This indicates extraordinary conditions for its growth.
