The Slovak Karst might be off most tourists’ radar, unless they are speleology enthusiasts visiting Slovakia for the sole purpose of seeing its numerous caves. In the Gemer region, surrounding the town of Rožňava, every town has a cave. James Thomson has seen some of them, and in this episode of our podcast he gives some practical tips about visiting a Slovak cave. Once you make it to the southeast, do not skip the visit to some above-ground sights, notably the Betliar mansion and the Krásna Hôrka castle (closed for reconstruction since 2012, but about to be opened), and the Jasov monastery.
