Discover the beaty of the underground
Apr 2016
On Saturday, it was raining and that was precisely the time to visit caves. We went to the Mladec caves that are above the village Mladeč , about 21 kilometres north west of Olomouc. Mladec Caves comprises of an intricate maze of fissure passages, domes, chimneys and large boulder ruckles, heavily eroded by running water. For the average visitor is not as attractive as nearby Javoříčko caves. On the other hand, it is considered one of the extremely significant paleonthological and archaeological localities. In addition to bones of extinct Pleistocene vertebrates a number of skeletons of people of the Early Stone Age have been found there, together with multiple objects evidencing their activities (stone instruments, fireplaces). The archaeologists claim that these caves have world meaning. The Mladeč caves are open from 9 pm, except Mondays (from April to October). Parking is about 600 m down on the edge of the village Mladeč. The path from the village square is marked with a red mark and leads up past the Pension Romeo. These caves represent a predominantly horizontal and very broken labyrinth of corridors, domes and high chimneys with remarkable modelling of walls and ceilings, with stalactite and stalagmite decoration and with numerous block cave-ins, with some steep corridors which extend even below the level of the underground water. They have a total of 1,250 metres of corridors and halls with denivelation of 30 metres. It takes visitors about 45 minutes to go through the 380 metre-long path. I suggest you dress appropriately because in the cave is very cold (8 °C), high humidity and wet everywhere present. Entrance facility with a building in the style of the famous Slovak architect Dušan Jurkovič. In the building, there is an updated exposition on the Cro-Magnon man. Enter the cave and space in the cave is not wheelchair accessible. The complex labyrinth of fissure corridors and caves can be found inside the calcite hill of Třesín.The most beautiful parts include the „Nature’s Temple“ and the „Virgin Cave“.In the Virgin Cave the shapes took on forms of hills with towers and castle ruins. The Nature’s Temple was dominated by what looks like it was once a shimmering white waterfall. Our children again enjoyed the reconstruction of the most northern settlements of the Cro-Magnon people and the Mumy Stalagmite in the Dome of the Dead. The cave has been known for ages and is considered one of the extremely significant paleonthological and archaeological localities. The cave fauna includes several species of bat which hibernate here every year. The radiocarbon dating of the Mladeč assemblage confirms that they derived from the time period of the middle to late Aurignacian of Central Europe. Mladec caves are without exaggeration unique in the world in terms of their geological development. Caves hide in its heart the rock's underground town which admire the speleogists as well as film makers or concerts are held here . The caves also help to heal children with diseases of the respiratory tract. Visit of the Mladec Caves can be combined with a visit Javoříčko caves or fairy castle Bouzov
