Jama - Grotta Baredine, Porec

4.5
#3 of 51 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.

  • With our children of 7 and twin of 3 a 30 minute German-speaking tour had in this cave. As is often written 270 steps (60 metres) the depth that the Guide on four times the public (about 30 people) the necessary information. You should make sure that you running in front because once again the last souls join the group is the Guide finished his story. It all looks nicely lit and in some way intriguing, but there are more beautiful caves. After a drink in the self service restaurant with small playground we left.

  • Clearly the whole thing is touristy, but it's part and well done? The cave is in great condition and it is great to dive into life under the Earth. We were seven (three adults and four children aged between 10 and 15) and everyone liked it. I'm glad that I was there!

  • 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 !
  • 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.
  • Nice cave. Good tour. Well organised. If you are heading to or from Novigrad; recommended to visit.

Where to stay in Porec

Porec serves as one of Croatia's most visited seaside destinations, so advance booking is essential for all travelers visiting at peak season. The city's inventory of lodgings includes everything from five-star hotels with sea views and all the modern amenities you need, to simply furnished rooms in rural houses a short drive outside the city. If you want to stay anywhere near the city center, expect steep prices and few bargains. For a budget-friendly alternative, look for small hotels and self-catering apartments outside the central district.
