Kateřinská Cave lives in the shadow of Macocha and its Punkva Cave. It was opened to the public in 1910. The circuit of this cave is shorter. It is decorated with stalactites and there is the Main Dome – the largest accessible underground dome in the Czech Republic (length 97 m, width 44 m, height 20 m). Thanks to its acoustics, concerts are held here. In 2019, the oldest prehistoric drawings in the Czech Republic were discovered in the cave, created by charcoal on the walls in the Late Stone Age, around 4200 BC

Stalactite decoration

Stalactite caves can be seen in the whole Moravian Karst.
