  • A nice tour of the Grotto one afternoon to get cool. The cave is pretty but has nothing extraordinary, more it is relatively small, we were surprised to be happened at the end. However a time out we just enjoy calm down for a NAP or a game of badminton in the field right next door with snowshoes and flying put at disposal. A plus!

  • Before this I visited Skocjan Caves which were totally from another planet. This cave is also nice and tiny and worth visiting if you haven't seen this sort of caves before.  more »
  • Beautiful cave to see. If you've been, more often in e.g. in France, this is not the most spectacular. We had a fine tour guide who spoke English very clearly. The nearly intact skeleton of a cave bear was the most special. The place where you could wait until the tour started outside was also fine, with some info plates and a playground and shop.

  • We had an excellent, knowledgable guide for our tour of the caves. Would definitely recommend - plenty of prehistoric interest as well as the views.
  • Guided tour takes about an hour and it's really cool! Guides are nice and funny and the complete darkness was really an unique experience :)
  • Awesome caves here, the guide speaks fluent english and his voice/accent is very interesting and somewhat funny. You can buy water and some other small snacks / sweets from a shop there.
  • While you are in croatia worst to see. Take 1h Tour guide was realy nice and had good knowledge about what he was talking.
  • Very cool was a 1-hour guided tour of approximately 200 meters can be just hike. But he could only visit this beautiful limestone cave!
