The Punkva Caves are situated in Pustý Žleb (Barren Deep), two kilometres from the Skalní Mlýn information centre upstream on the Punkva River. The tour consists of two parts. In the first stage, you will walk through massive domes and corridors with dripstone decoration to the bottom of the Macocha Abyss. You will experience real adrenaline in the second part as you travel along the underground Punkva River by motorboat. The cruise includes a tour of the Masaryk Dome, the most beautiful space of the Punkva Caves, although everything you have seen prior to that is worth it, too.
The caves are part of the longest cave system in the Czech Republic, the Amatérská Cave (Amateur Cave). The length of its corridors which have been discovered so far is over 30 kilometres.
For wheelchair users: visit the Front Dome in the dry part of the cave and with a little help from the guides when getting in the boat, you can also go on a cruise on the underground Punkva River. It is necessary to announce your visit beforehand by calling +420 516 418 602.
You should book the tour in advance, because it is in high demand. Don’t be sad if you cannot get to the Punkva Caves this time. Go a little further, to the Kateřinská Cave (Catherine Cave), for example.
