The tour with a guide took almost one hour. A half of the tour you went down the stairs and the other part you went up again. There were 330 mostly slippery stairs. There were no stalactites, but you could see marble, semi-precious stones and interesting colorfull rock formation there. And cocoons of spiders hanging on the walls and ceilings. There was a little stone, that looked like a devil. Its name was "Čertík" and you could touch it for luck. The cave was beautiful but going through it was a little more physically demanding.

Entrance fee was 120,- CZK per adults and if you wanted to take pictures, you had to buy a special permition for 40,- CZK.

People visiting the cave usually expect and see a variety of stalactites. This is totaly different here. The underground spaces are made of coarse-grained crystalline limestone, so don't look for stalactites here. Interesting and colorful walls of various shapes were excavated into the limestone by an underground watercourse. Small part of the cave accessible to the public is more visual show, smartly presented by the guides. The cave in the heart of the mountain is a place of beautiful colors and various rock formations. A unique trip to the fairytale world awaits you with interesting light effects and musical accompaniment. Kids will love it !

Three practical tips : the excursion is not at all suitable for the people with reduced mobility. You should get dressed warmly as the temperature inside the cave is rather low ( around 9 °C ). Try to book your tour in advance. There may be long waiting times during the season

The biggest and most deepest cave in Southern Bohemia. No stalactites there but beautiful colors of the walls. You can get to the depth of 51 metres! The temperature there is 8C even in the summer so get a jumper if you decide to visit it. Many steep stairs. I wouldn't recommend it for children under 5 years old. The whole visit takes about 45-50 minutes.

Small cave, but a good one to visit if you have never been in one before, A nice winding pathway of many stairs (330) down and lots of interesting rock formation coloring's but no real stalagmite, stalactites or crystals.
The guide was very friendly and my kids enjoyed the Czech version of the tour while I was given an English laminated copy of the information to take around the tour with me which was perfect.
Fair price for entrance and no charge for under 6 years old, Only thought the charge for taking photos was a bit mean but paid it anyway. :)

Nice place to visit. Although rout is relative short (about 280 m) you need to use more than 330 stairs to come down 40 meters and go back. A complex karst system formed in hard-grain crystalline calcites and partially also in non-karst rocks. The cave lacks the classical stalactite and stalagmite decorations; however, the shapes of its areas and hues of its walls are entirely unique. The cave is winter-quarter of different bats, spectacular photo-gallery is located inside.
