We had an knowledgeable and passionate guide who led us through the caves for about an hour long tour. We enjoyed seeing all the stalagmites, stalactites, large chasms, sleeping bats, small rock pools, rock formations of all different colours some glittering in the light. Definitely worth a look if you are in the area.

the cave is nice, but much smaller and less interesting than many other caves in Europe and elsewhere. If you are in the vicinity for a few days it is an option, but certainly not more than that. The guidance in English was excellent. One should know it involves 500 m walk to the tickets booth and a steep climb... More

Nice and small Cave with a very friendly Guide who let me join the last Tour. Was Lucky, this week every Day is Open due to Kroatien family week, normally in Oktober it is just Open Fr-Sun . 60 Per Person is not too much.

The tour of the cave took about hour. Our guide did our tour in 2 languages fluently and was very knowledgeable about the area and the cave itself. Located in a beautiful little park, which would be good for a nice little picnic, should you plan your tour around lunch time.

Went with my son this morning at 11AM. Walked around for 45 minutes. All structures were boarded up and no one was around. Signage was weak and the ground were a bit run down. By they time we left, there must have been 20 people there all wondering why the place wasn't open. Turns out a local said that sometimes... More

You don't know what you're on when you go into those caves. The stairs keep winding and taking yu up (preferably) eventually coming out on the upper level. Quite nice!

We had some extra time after visiting Plitvice Lakes and decided to see the cave. The drive there from the lakes was pretty and gave us a good look at the countryside, driving on small, winding roads. Once we arrived we needed to wait 20 minutes for the next tour. We waited in a very nice outdoor area with gazebos... More

Caves of Barać are located some six kilometres to the east of Rakovica (highway Zagreb-Split), just over half a kilometre to the west from the centre of the village of Nova Kršlja. 200 meters of the cave are open for tourists. Tickets are Kn 60 for adults and Kn 30 for children. The tour inside the cave takes 45-60 minutes.... More

My wife and I were looking for something to do after our visit to Plitvice lakes. The Barac caves seemed like a good option and we were not disappointed: our guide Slaven was extremely friendly, spoke good English and was very knowledgeable about the caves. The caves offer some spectacular sights on millions of years old geological formations (stalactites, stalagmites,... More

If you arrive and mis the notice board at the upper area of the car park, hike the 600 metres ands it's a Tuesday then you will be out of luck. A lot of people arrived, hiked and found it was closed.... All other days of the week it's open. Given it's a wet day activity not the best needless... More
