Modric Cave (Modric Spilja), Zadar County

5.0
#4 of 11 in Nature in Zadar County
Don a helmet, headlight, coveralls, and a brave face as you prepare to go underground at Modric Cave (Modric Spilja). This natural cave was first excavated in 1985, but human bones, remnants of Neolithic pottery, and the remains of Holocene fauna (including a cave bear found within the cave) are proof that the site had been used for many years before the recent discovery. You can join a guide to tour the cave's depths, where you'll crawl over and under speleothems. The cave ranges between 2 m (7 ft) and 8 m (26 ft) in both height and width through most passages, reaching a height of 29 m (95 ft) at one point.

  • Was the hammer really recommended. Our guide spoke mainly English and a little German. But it was really good he had a lot and gallows humor, one has also learned of the prompting. We can only recommend it was real a nice tour.
