Beautiful forest, enchanting caves. You might need to call ahead and reserve a tour

This was a very nice trip. We wanted to see Punkova caves, it's a boat tour, but that tour was sold out. Instead we walked through the forest and down to Katerinska caves. It was... read more

This was a very nice trip. We wanted to see Punkova caves, it's a boat tour, but that tour was sold out. Instead we walked through the forest and down to Katerinska caves. It was also beautiful. The train ride (we were traveling with a small child) to the upper levels and the cable car to Macocha Abyss were pleasant... More

There are more than 1 000 caves in this area and however you can visit only few of them it is really amazing tour. You can go hiking and visit Macocha Abyss or you can use funicular to get at the top of this attracton. You can even stay for night in Chata Macocha - accommodation just few meters from... More

Take the cable car to the bottom ! Or walk down, I wouldn't waste my energy on that rather take the walk to Katherine caves.. Very cold in side so better be prepared.. What an amazing experience to ride the boat in underground river.. Try to use public transport and walk as much as possible when you are in this... More

We're sight seeing in Prague for a few days . Took the bus to Brno and stayed overnight . Took an early train at 8 am to Blansko. This took about 30 minutes. Got the bus 226 to Skalni Mlyn which took 10 minutes. The Punkova caves are closed this month and we were aware. We walked to Machocca Abyss... More

So the whole Karst is listed as one attraction? There are several hundred of caves (small, big), mountains, streams, tourist trails and everything else. And all this about 20 minutes of train ride from Brno.

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

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
