Modric Cave (Modric Spilja), Zadar County

5.0
#3 of 7 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.

    When searching for a proper tour of the caves for our family, we have encountered the Modric Spilja. An E-mail was sufficient and an appointment was found. On in the adventure... It was a little "private tour", our three children (2 x 7Jahre and 1 x 11Jahre), and the two of us with Marijan and Emma. It was a great experience. It is an incredibly beautiful cave. At our request, so that our children could understand everything well, we got the lead in German. Marijan and Emma have wonderful care of the children and with much background knowledge and wit. Thank you for that. Hint: the tour is difficult to deal with for people with claustrophobia. Otherwise a fully recommended experience. ULI and Ralf with family

    We had to experience happiness in our penultimate day still a tour with Marijan. Already on the way to the cave he has drawn our attention on the nature. Without him, we would have overlooked the tortoise but smooth! In the cave, he knows the way, safe step, even by the smallest column one. With much wit and knowledge, he inspires one of the wonders that has to offer the cave. Thank you, it was wonderful!
