Dobsinska Ice Cave, Dobsina

3.1
#3 of 9 in Parks 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's a huge lucrative tourist factory (€3,50 parking + € 8 per person + € 10 for the pictures). Access take about 1 / 2 hours and there are 130 m uphill. The visit is done by group of 50 to 100 people every 10 minutes. 2 breakpoints with comments only. It is somewhat normal as there is not much to see: large masses of ice on the walls and 3 or 4 concretions of ice without interest. Aside to cool down to-2 ° C for 30 minutes after a good sweat for access no other interest.
