Thanks to rainfall in recent days, tourists have a unique chance to take a boat tour in the Domica Cave.
Inscribed on the UNESCO list, the cave is located 10 km from the town of Plešivec and 2 km from the Hungarian border. With its 780 metres open to visitors, it is the longest cave in Slovenský Kras National Park.
However, Domica boat tours on the Styx River have become infrequent in recent years due to climate changes. In 2014, it even dried out completely.
Tourists can select from short and long circuits. The latter, almost 1 kilometre long, includes a boat trip.
Apart from the boat trip, visitors can admire lakes, the onion-like stalactites and pagoda-like stalagmites in the cave. Up to 16 different bats live in the cave as well.
Near the cave, tourists can set out on a 2.5-kilometre educational trip to learn more about the karst landscape with scrap fields and beautiful views.
Parking space is at the visitors’ disposal.
