Slovakia is full of beautiful caves and underground places. Many of them are hidden and undiscovered, many can be entered only by experienced cavers. Only a handful of 2400+ caves in Slovakia are to be seen and admired by a public eye.
A cave is a remarkable natural phenomena. It is a large underground space created naturally by the weathering of rock.
The caves of Slovak Karst system are listed in the UNESCO’s World Heritage List. These caves are noted for having the world’s highest stalagmite, aragonite and sinter formations and an ice filled abyss, which considering the territory’s height above sea level, is a unique phenomenon for central Europe.
