The cave is small but very well exposed, with professional and friendly service of guides. The place has been growing over the years and the most important are further discoveries of the Neanderthal inhabitants' traces and coral reef traces confirming the fact that once the Świętokrzyskie region was flooded with the tropical sea. Generally an interesting and good place where I've been 3 times so far.

Every group is accompanied by a guide. You can rent a headset with an option of several languages to choose from. Make sure to book tickets in advance, also dress appropriately. The cave has an amazing history and has gorgeous stalactites, stalagmites and other cave formations! You cannot take photos at the cave.
Next to the cave you will find Neandertal Center. Very informative, headset available as well. There is a big parking for both attractions (paid), short walk thru gorgeous forest to the cave.

One of the most beautiful cave in Poland, worth seeing, just 11 km from Kielce. You can take a bus from PKP - bus station (only 3 zł p/p 🤑) and than walk approximately 500-600 metres.
The length of the tour is 180 m. the tour takes about 45 minutes. Visiting takes place under the supervision of a guide in groups of up to 15 people. Unfortunately, there are no descriptions in english which is a big disadvantage for foreign tourists.

I wanted to visit Paradise Cave for quite some time. We drove there for about 2h and we were greeted by a bit of snow. Entrance to the cave is rather odd through a little caffe/souvenirs shop. Cave itself is flat (no going deeper into Mother Earth) with very narrow corridors. Most of the time you walk around in semi dark (guide will turn lights on and off after each section). It’s not a very big cave however views are still spectacular. We managed to see one of the local residents - sleeping bat. Overall good trip.

A different kind of adventure, you can go back in time and see what the world looked like millions of years ago. The guide was very informative and as we went on a weekday there were only 3 other people with us. We were lucky to see a cluster of cute bats sleeping together! Fantastic experience, great for couples.

It is not suitable for young children, as they dont allow you to walk around in the cave. You only enter with a guide in small groups. The guide tells about the different formations (only in Polish) in different locations inside the cave. So you basicly have to stand quietly and listen. Walking around, touching or photographing is not allowed. Not recommended.

This is the most amazing place in the antire area - if you;re around and have 1-2 spare hours, you have to see it, even at the expence of Chęciny castle. It's a 180-meter long walk inside one of the most beautiful caves in the World. Takes roughly 45 minutes (15 minutes of intro + 30 minutes inside the cave) and it's worth every penny, since there is a huge number of limestone stalactites and stalagmites.

Make an online reservation well in advance (at leas a few days / 1 week during summer) as this cave is very popular. All tours are up to 15 people and guided. It's cold inside (9 degrees Celsius - 48 Fahrenheit) so bring warm clothes. The parking lot is currently 5 PLN and then you have to walk around 300 metres to the cave; there's also a small restaurant on the site (and another in the parking lot).

The best cave system open for tourists in Poland. Great for a day trip for all age groups. A truly unique experience.

The best part about this interesting cave is the balanced tour. Even though this is a tourist attraction there is some historical and geological information during the tour, and some simple but effective visual effects are used to back up the stories and information that the guides give.

The cave is pretty "fragile" and hence entrance is only allowed with guides and on a designated tour route through the cave.
