The Rudice Sinkhole is the dominant feature of the central part of the Moravian Karst Protected Landscape Area. Together with Býčí Skála (Bull Rock), it forms the second longest cave system in the Czech Republic with a total length of over thirteen kilometres!
What is a sinkhole? The waters of the Jedovnický Stream disappear under the ground and spring back up to the earth's surface after a twelve-kilometre pilgrimage through the mysterious underground near the Bull Rock in Josefov. This is a place where a famous bronze statuette of a bull was found.
Rudice Sinkhole is the largest sinkhole in the Moravian Karst and this is really something. The waters of the Jedovnický Stream gradually fall to the depth of up to ninety metres. One of the highest waterfalls in the Czech Republic is located in a sinkhole! Moreover, there is the Rudická Abyss in the cave, the deepest Czech dry abyss, and the Giant Dome, one of the largest cave spaces in the Czech Republic. The cave is connected with the Bull Rock by the so-called Serbian siphon.
So many superlatives. If you are looking for proper natural romance, the Rudice Sinkhole and the entire Moravian Karst has to be your next destination.
