Dobsinska Ice Cave, Dobsina

3.3
#2 of 18 in Nature in Kosice Region
Tour subterranean tunnels filled with a host of formations at Dobsinska Ice Cave, part of a World Heritage-listed series of caverns. Tucked away in a secluded part of the Western Carpathian Mountains, the cave reaches nearly 1.5 km (0.9 mi) back into the rock. Join a guided tour, the only way to access the cave, and get up-close looks at towering stalagmites, hanging stalactites, and other ice structures as you walk the tour path. By volume, the ice makes it one of the largest caves of its kind in the world. Temperatures within hover around freezing year-round and the ground is slippery, so dress accordingly and wear sensible walking shoes.

  • It is the largest ice cave in Slovakia, it is also among the world's sites. Exit to the cave can be for people with low physical fitness levels more difficult. It is advisable, before entering the caves for a few minutes to relax, not to the temperature difference for body too big a shock. Tour of the cave is interesting and definitely worth a visit. No flash photography is possible at an additional cost. It is not possible to pay by card.

  • Four because expecting more and more expected, because a perfect feedback on what this amazing cave and the cave turned out beautiful, but not shocked. Before the track leading to the cave big paid parking, café, one can accurately anymore. Track, rather a walking trail leads up and on it it is necessary to lay down at least half an hour if you have excellent physical training. We were in August and the group failed to meet the schedule, leaving the cave more than once in half an hour, and more often, but with this you should be more careful, perhaps it was the exception to the rule, because people were very much, but it seems to me there's always a lot. The surrounding area of the cave have to walks, if you have the time and special shoes. Cave left very good impression, but to say that it "must see" can't

  • The original cave. Was in different caves, but in this cave has not been. The downside was the parking, but it's the little things. 20 minutes walk to the caves in the Hill through the Woods, kind of chic, clean air. I advise you to come in the morning, and be sure to look at their website they visiting hours are subject to change, so if you don't have time for 11:00 for example, the following entry only in 12:30, so be careful. Even the second minus is that we got to tour with the Hungarian team and did not understand anything about what the guide said, but it is our fault, we had to ask at the entrance of that band, so ask at the entrance of what language to the language that you do not understand. Inside the cave is very interesting, plenty of ice, I thought it would be less frozen corridor, we really enjoyed it, I advise you to visit. And dress warmer in a cave near 0 degrees, if not less.
