Sloupsko-šošůvské caves

Local name: Sloupsko-šošůvské jeskyně

Sloupsko-šošůvské caves belong to the longest cave system in the Czech Republic. It is a vast complex of caverns, corridors and chasms located on two "floors". The underground route is up to 1760 meters. The cave also has a constant temperature of 7-8 ° C.

One of the most interesting chambers is Eliščina, which is characterized by great acoustics, which is sometimes used for chamber music concerts. The most extensive part of the complex is Stare Skały. There are gaps here: Stupňovitá, 65 m deep and Nagelova, 90 m deep. Both gulfs can be admired by tourists from the bridges built over them.

The chambers in šošůvské caves are smaller, but rich in infiltrative forms. In Broušková hall there is a unique stalactite - "Svicen". Also in this part, tourists can admire the abyss - 70 m deep, the so-called Black Divide. The exit from the complex is the Kůlna Cave, where Neanderthal skulls dating back to 120,000 years were discovered.
