Visit The cave is geomorphological monument of nature since 1986, and it has been opened for visitors since 1995. The sightseeing lasts 40 minutes; visitors descend along a 300m long pathway up to 60m below the ground and an underground lake and visit five beautifully decorated chambers. The cave is well lit and equipped, the paths and stairways have firm railing, and the temperature is very pleasant at 14˚C.

“Really interesting, and really well presented!”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

We rode our bikes up from Porec to visit this cave attraction - a nice trip through olive tree groves and past wineries. The tour started on time and our presenter spoke excellent German and English. Sensible shoes and a light jacket are recommended. If you have trouble walking or climbing or have claustrophobia, you might want to sit outside. But there are lots of nice places to sit outside, in the sun or shade or in the restaurant. We really enjoyed this attraction. Clean bathrooms, and right next to the cave is a small souvenir stand with honey and honey products. As well, there's a gentleman selling customized post cards for a ridiculously low price. He takes your picture and puts it into one of his self designed templates and prints it out. You just have to make sure that you have the right postage because they are oversize. They do make a nice souvenir too.
Read no further if you don't want to hear griping about irresponsible parents with barely toddling children...
Caveat:The chances that you will experience parents whose cameras are more important than their children, resulting in the hollow sound of childrens' heads hitting stone and filling the cave with understandably extremely loud cries, depends on how many parents visit the cave on the day that you visit it. If you yourself are a parent with an 18 month old with a normal attention span who can't walk that well, perhaps a trip to the beach might be a better activity. Or you could put your camera in the case, and hold onto your child to reduce the chance of head injury. The floors and steps are slippery and you need to hold onto the hand railing with both hands in many places. I wouldn't take a kid in there who was under 5 years of age, and then only one that had a relatively high level of coordination. We left our 'big' cameras at the apartment, and took our compact camera with us so that it could easily be tucked into the case on the backpack shoulder strap. The guide handled the little one really well, but the time she needed to calm the poor little bugger down, took away from the other paying guests, and there was plenty of grumbling about it. With the parents insisting on going down the cave in front of all the other guests, it ended up taking 1 hour instead of the scheduled 40 minutes. Elderly people simply said directly, "When our children were little, we went at the end, so as not to hold up the whole group", but it didn't have any effect.

“Enjoyed the cave and it's features”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

We were very pleased to do the cave as it is most worthwhile but you need to be prepared to do a few steps some quite steep . Good shoes recommended.
The caves are very attractive and the commentary is in all languages .

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

The cave system is interesting, if you like that sort of thing. The steps are quite steep, not for frail or unfit people.

“Fun!”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Little hard to find, for the signs are a little confusing. But parking is plentiful, the cave is fun to be in, the guide is also fun. It is not a huge cave, so the "trip" will be fast, but it is worth it.
