“Great cave - very well organised”
Reviewed August 10, 2014

This is an excellent destination for a day trip out of Prague. It can be easily found on GPS and has a huge parking. The view is amazing, both inside the cave and the area outside. We told to our little one that is the cave of a good witch, and she was very curious all the way to find the witch...looking in all the corners :). At the end of the cave there was the statue of a women (story says she's member of the illegal group that counterfeiting money in the 14'th century inside the cave) - so lucky for us...my little one found also the good witch and she was super happy :).

My advice :be there early (8.30 - 9.00) as later it gets very busy.

“An interesting cave tour”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

This cave is located half way between Beroun and Karlstejn. It is a half a kilometre walk from the carpark to the cave entrance via the ticket office. Here you can pick up an English translation sheet for which you pay a deposit until it is returned. You also have to pay a separate fee to allow you to take photos.
The first room was a dome chamber which had numerous spiralled rock formations in the ceiling. There were eight chambers in all connected by short paths or stairs. We came upon a chamber showing a stalagmite and stalactite which were almost touching, and also contained such formations growing sideways which were called Eccentrics. The next chamber had an impressive feature called the organ pipes which were fluted rock formations hanging from the ceiling. We then came to a display featuring replicas of bones of humans and animals that had fallen through a chimney once exposed to the outside and died. These included a horse and a rhino jaw. The second last chamber featured a glassed over cavity in the floor where the partial remains of a polar bear had been unearthed. The final chamber accessed via a steep spiral staircase was one of the most interesting. It was called The Mint and had housed for a short while a counterfeit money operation back in the 1600s. Here the guide switched off all the lights plunging us in darkness. As we were the only non Czech speakers we had no idea what was coming. Thankfully a rail was nearby.
Overall it was an enjoyable visit but the guide came across in a monotone voice and somewhat disinterested.

“Amazing adventure”
Reviewed May 12, 2014

The caves are situated in Central Bohemia, 7 km South of Beroun, in the middle of the nature reserve of Czech Karst, not far from the castles of Křivoklát and Karlštejn. The caves were discovered in 1950 and made accessible for the public in 1959. The caves originate in 400-million-year-old Devon calcite rocks, consist of three levels to be found 70 m under the ground-level, and over 2 km long. The accessible part is 620 m long and the sightseeing tour lasts 1 hour.The top level housed a 15th century secret workshop of money forgers. The caves can boast of unique opal-bearing decorations, as well as numerous paleonthological excavations, documenting the history of Earth Nature of the past 1.5 million years.

The fee is 130 CZK per adult and if you want to make a pics inside its necessary pay next 40 CZK for stamp. There is 500 stairs during the tour,but its worth of it, There is lots of amazing and interesting scenes in the caves. Temperature is 10,5 Celsium but its not so bad,air humidity 96-100%,there is souvenir shop and small bistro with hamburgers and the other staff,and also the parking for the payment.
