Few countries are blessed with such a large volume of diverse underground karst formations as Slovakia. There are over 6 200 known caves, eight of which can be visited.
They include the most significant and most precious, the UNESCO listed caves of the Slovenský kras (Slovak Karst) and Dobšinská ľadová jaskyňa (Dobšina Ice Cave).
Of special value is the Ochtinská aragonitová jaskyňa (Ochtiná AragoniteCave), the only cave of its kind in Europe. Its subterranean chambers are adorned with crystals of aragonite, formed in some places into the shape of fragile corals and snow white shrublets.
In Domica we fi nd the largest known cave of the Slovak Karst, where you can experience a trip on little boats down the River Styx.
