Jama - Grotta Baredine, Porec

4.6
#2 of 50 in Parks in Istria
Take a guided tour of Jama - Grotta Baredine, an underground cave filled with sculptures, lakes, and odd little creatures called "human fish," found only in this part of the world. Due to millennia of complete darkness and seclusion, this cave has developed a world of its own--the temperature inside is constantly around 14 C (57 F), the walls are moist, and the ornaments otherworldly. The "human fish" are actually aquatic salamanders that are white to pinkish in color and blind. Walk the 300 m (1,000 ft) long pathway, visit five chambers, and hear facts about the cave.

  • This is a beautiful cave. The tour guide was informative and friendly, giving an excellent multilingual tour. There are informative exhibits about the unique cave wildlife. I can't overstate that these are probably the best stalactite and stalagmite limestone cave formations that I have ever seen. And seeing real live olms is a bonus.
  • What an experience! If you happen to be in the region, please check it out. It's only a 40 minute tour through the caves, so doesn't take up much time but it's worth any minute. Our guide has been a very fun person, spoke good English, and told interesting stories. You will hike 60m deep into the cave and see stunning formations. It's usually 14°C cold, but with a shirt it's completely fine. The light is just optimal to make some great photos. You will also have a chance to see some of the proteus anguinus salamander species, which live in the caves. Recommended!
  • Really nice cave, with 5 rooms, the last one being the most beautiful with water inside and amazing stalagmites. A bit expensive, but worth it !
  • Intetesting place, nice Cave, very nice People
  • 70 kn for adults and 45 for kids ain't cheap, however the cave is beautiful and the guides are friendly and informative. It's a 40 minutes long tour and the next group is soon at your back.
