Visitors to Dobšinská ľadová cave this year will see a piece of nature’s art which has not been present in the recent past.

Fragile crystals appeared due to warm air flow and condensation of wetness on the cave walls.

In good conditions the crystals should stay until the end of the season in September. The cave will be reopen on May 16th after being closed for the winter.
