Natural Wonders in the Czech Republic: Punkva Caves and Macocha Abyss

Oct
06

The Punkva Caves are a hidden treasure in the countryside north of Brno, the Czech Republic’s second largest city.  Discovered in 1909 & 1914 these caves extend back into the hills, following the path of an underground river. The stalactite and stalagmite formations are the best we’ve ever seen in both quality and quantity. The mineral deposits that have accumulated over the centuries have been remarkably well preserved due to timed admissions and conservation minded tour guides. The tour is given in Czech, but there are accompanying English language recordings available at no extra charge.
