The biggest attractions of the Moravian Karst
There is probably no bigger attraction in the Moravian Karst than a trip to the Punkva Cave and the huge abyss Macocha. A walk through the caves, a tour of the abyss and finally a cruise on the river Punkva in the depths of the cave is a really great experience. Don't forget that there is a lot of interest in this trip and if you want to be sure that you will get there, buy tickets well in advance
Entrance to the Punkva Cave
The entrance to the Punkva Cave is in a massive limestone rock. You will also find an extensive modern visitor center. You can get here on foot from Skalní Mlýn or from the tourist cottage Macocha (either on foot or by cable car)
Beautiful decoration of Punkva Cave
In the first part of the tour, three beautifully decorated domes await you – the Front, Reichenbach and Back House. There is also a beautiful mirror lake and a massive decoration of stalactites, stalagmites and stalagmites
The path of the Punkva Caves
The actual path of the caves is not completely relaxing – long stairs await you here. At the very end, an artificially excavated corridor in the rock leads towards the famous Macocha abyss. In total, it is a kilometer and a quarter of a walk and about half an hour
After leaving the cave, you will get a breathtaking view from the bottom of the abyss Macocha
A pond at the bottom of the Macocha abyss
At the bottom of this 138 meter deep abyss is a beautiful lake. The abyss was created by the collapse of the ceiling of a former huge cave.
Descent to the port
From the bottom of the Macocha abyss, long stairs lead to the depths to the underground port, where the famous voyage on the river Punkva begins.
Underground cruise on the river Punkva
An underground cruise is probably the highlight of this whole trip. Sometimes you only have the ceiling of the cave just above your head and there is still something to look at.
The cruise has another break, when the ships depart for a tour of the beautiful Masaryk Dome
Finally, daylight appears, we sail to the spring of Punkva

The view from the other side is nice. A visit to the Punkva Cave and the Macocha Abyss is really worth it.

Nebýt lodiček a propasti, která je ze spoda opravdu úchvatná, tak to není takový tahák. Sloupsko-Šošůvské a Javoříčko mi přišlo na výzdobu lepší. Ale každý hledá něco jiného. Za to mezi slabší patří Balcarka - díky špatnému modernímu nasvícení.
