  • We went for the weekend to Kielce and we could not miss the cave Paradise. Getting traffic from the city center-30 minutes. I advise you to pre-book tickets over the Internet because I can meet unpleasant disappointment. Great guide prepared with many points of interest, he told us the story of this place, and comprehensively answered questions. I definitely recommend visiting this magical place.

  • May is not a special place for children, however, is impressive. First take to guide later about 30 minute tour. There is a lot of walking, sometimes dark and wet. Best to come in February, wake up then bats and can be found between the slots. December and January is the time for them to Hibernate. In the cave you can see fancy infiltrates kalcytowe, listen to the stories about the founding of Paradise, etc. At the souvenir stand, part of the food for human consumption in the form of: French fries, casseroles, coffee and tea. You can buy souvenirs. Free parking from the cave at about 250 m. you must come to the Grove. You cannot take photos, record the cave because ... it already reports back every guide
