In a distinctive village under the Tatras lies a fabulous cave. It is the ancient home of the cave bear, who lived and raised their young there 15,000 years ago.
The cave consists of a long horizontal corridors and halls formed by erosion of the Biely Vah creek. The cave is richly decorated with glistening white stalactites in a wonderful fairy-tale shapes, remarkable lakes with rich sinter decoration of various colors and wall waterfalls. We can find a lot of river sediments here, such as fine gravel or huge cave bear bones.
