We would like to invite you to a visit of the Krásnohorská
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.
