An easy enough daytrip from Brno, but you need to plan it in advance. The connections are infrequent, the Punkva caves often need reservations in advance (and these really are the best ones to go to), and you need more time there than you think. We walked all afternoon and only ended up having time to do the Punkva caves.... More

We loved the tour of the punkva caves. Coming out into the macocha abyss opening was a stunning experience that I won't forget in a hurry. Also do go for the Katerina cave where they have a wonderful acoustic display and also put u in pitch darkness for a minute to show u how dark the depths of the cases... More

Once in Brno or Moravia area, you should not miss Moravian Karst. It has beautiful nature, but most of all there are five higlhy interesting caves (Kateřinská, Sloupsko-Šošůvská, Výpustek, Balcarka, Punkevní - where you can travel on boats on Punkva river). Also the Machocha abbys is definitely worth seeing. Take at least one week for it and do not forget... More

The caves around Blansko, Czech Republic are popular places for locals and visitors from surrounding countries. The problem with the Punkva Caves is that to get a ticket, you must arrive by 10am to get a ticket for the tour. I went about 11:15 when I first arrived and they were sold out for the day. Nobody mentioned if I... More

Just amazing is the only way to describe this incredible area. We stayed in Brno and drove to the caves (only about a 30 minute drive). Unfortunately the Punkva cave tour was booked out for the day - I would recommend you pre-book this one but we were able to do a tour of one of the lesser know caves... More

The Moravian caves are definitely worth the visit when you are in the area. It took me awhile to research and figure out what to do to visit this attraction, so I've summarized it here for your convenience: 1. Make a reservation by sending an e-mail with your date and preferred range of time to: info@caves.cz It takes them a... More

I have visited the Burren and the Ailwee Caves here in Ireland but in comparison this place just blows it away. These caves have incredible natural features that are given some natural light to show off their beauty and the tour takes you around to see various different formations before leading to the Macocha Abyss which is pretty remarkable when...

You can take small train to the entrance of the caves and then take a tour through cave system. Guides are knowledgeable but give tour only in Czech,you can buy foreign guide books before you go. Only few caves are open to public for safety but scenes of ancient caves with spectacular stalactites and stalagmites is something you never forget.... More
