Directions to Krásnohorská Cave
Krásnohorská Cave, a unique karst formation, which is registered in The World Heritage List of UNESCO. The cave boasts the tallest stalagmite in the moderate climate zone.
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 Rožnava Cavers – the giant column 34 m (111 ft) 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. Visitors will pass 450 m (492 yd) long route built up by using wooden footbridges lying above an underground stream, which flows through the main cave passage. Besides, they 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 is good to have hiking shoes. If you do not have suitable shoes we can borrow you gum boots for 1 euro. 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 (0.63 mi) to the cave entrance. The visit lasts approximately 2 and a half hours. During high season (15 June to 15 September), visiting times are at 9 am, 11:30 am and 2 pm. During other months, it is necessary to book the visit by phone or via email. Due to high interest we recommend to book a visit during summer too.
