The Moravian Karst is the biggest and most significant Karst region in the Czech Republic. Within this 33-square mile area one finds the Punkva caves. which are the largest.

Our tour group of 22 visited here in late September 2019. Upon arrival we boarded a "train" that took us to the cave entrance. Once inside the mountain, we walked uphill for quite a distance amid cathedrals of fantastic stalactites and stalagmites. Religious music piped in at three different locations added drama and emotion to the visit.

After our walk, we boarded boats, traveling 1,443 feet along the Punkva River. The channel is very narrow, and the ceiling at times quite low. My husband had to keep his head down about a third of the time, so viewed the area sideways! Beware if you are tall! The boat tour concluded amidst the dripstone decoration of the Masaryk's Dome.

Upon emerging, we walked a short distance to get on cable cars that took us to the top of the gorge. There was not much to see, especially since it was misting.

All in all, it was a worthwhile experience.

So others can learn from our experience and not be disappointed. We showed up at 9:30 am on the first Sunday in October. The first tour available was at noon so we could have visited the caves but unfortunately this time was too late for us. So take their advice and register for a tour if you have a schedule to keep to.

The whole area is well worth a visit with at least 5 separate cave systems to explore as well as the beautiful scenery.
This particular cave network is amazing with some fantastic structures and the mirror pool was beautiful.
The whole tour is about an hour and there are a lot of steps to climb, so not really for people with mobility issues, it seems strange to be climbing upwards in a cave, but it's worth the climb.
The underground boat trip was really interesting and you eventually arrive almost where you started, so not far to get back.
Tip for the tour is to take the tourist train from the entrance to the park, as it's a good mile or so climb to get to the actual cave.
Definitely worth a visit

Extraordinary day exploring the caves and gorges. Everything very well organised, reasonably priced and not too busy given it was popular attraction. Easy and cheap train journey from Brno to Blansko and then got a taxi to the caves as the tourist bus wasn't running (lunchtime). Well worth visiting all the open caves but you must book in advance for the main one.
