Driny Cave, the only accessible cave in Western Slovakia, is celebrating the 90th anniversary since its discovery.

The guided tours in the cave are not demanding, so it is a great choice for families with children or retired people.

Access to the cave starts one kilometre from Smolenice, walking takes about 20 minutes to the steep hill. The guided tour runs at 10:00, 11:30, 13:00, 14:30.
