Jaskyna Driny / Driny Cave

Driny Driny cave Driny




Jaskyna Driny:

Jaskyna Driny je jedinou sprístupnenou jaskynou na západnom Slovensku. Nachádza sa v Smolenickom krase v Malých Karpatoch juhozápadne od Smoleníc. Záhadnú dieru miestni obcania poznali už v 19. storocí,. Typickou sintrovou výzdobou pre túto jaskynu sú sintrové záclony so zúbkovitým lemovaním.

Poloha jaskyne:
Jediná sprístupnená jaskyna na západnom Slovensku. Nachádza sa v Smolenickom krase v Malých Karpatoch juhozápadne od Smoleníc, v blízkosti rekreacného strediska Jahodník. Leží na území Chránenej krajinnej oblasti Malé Karpaty. Vchod do jaskyne na západnom svahu vrchu Driny, ktorý vystupuje z juhozápadného úbocia Cejtacha, je v nadmorskej výške 399 m.

Prírodné pomery:
Vytvorená je v druhohorných hnedosivých spodnokriedových rohovcových vápencoch vysockého príkrovu koróziou atmosférických vôd pozdlž tektonických porúch. Dosahuje dlžku 680 m a vertikálne rozpätie 40 m. Pozostáva z úzkych puklinových chodieb (Chodba spolupracovníkov, Benovského chodba, Chodba nádejí) a nevelkých sienovitých priestorov (Sien Slovenskej speleologickej spolocnosti), ktoré sa vytvorili najmä na križovatkách tektonických porúch. Objavný komín, ktorý klesá do hlbky od horného vchodu má charakter závrtového komína.
Puklinové podzemné priestory dekoruje bohatá sintrová výpln. Pre jaskynu sú typické sintrové záclony so zúbkovitým lemovaním. Dalej sú zastúpené sintrové vodopády a náteky, pagodovité stalagmity a rozlicné formy stalaktitov. Vyskytujú sa aj sintrové jazierka, ktoré sú doplnované presakujúcou zrážkovou vodou.

Driny Cave
Driny Cave is the only show cave in the western Slovakia. It is located in the Smolenice karst in the Lesser Carpathians, to the southwest of Smolenice. The mysterious hole in the earth was known for the local people already in the 19-th century. Flowstone draperies with indented facing are typical for this cave.

Cave location:
It is the only show cave in the Western Slovakia. It is located in the Smolenice Karst in the Lesser Carpathians Mountains, south-westerly from Smolenice, in the Trnava district and near the recreation resort Jahodník. The cave lies in the territory of the Lesser Carpathians Protected Landscape Area. The entrance is situated on the western slope of the Driny Hill, which protrudes from the south-western hillside of Cejtach and lies 399 m above sea level.

Natural settings:
It is formed in brown-grey Lower Cretaceous chert limestones of the Vysocký Nappe by corrosion of atmospheric waters penetrating along tectonic faults. The cave reaches the length of 680 m and vertical span of 40 m. It consists of narrow fissure passages, from one to three meters wide (Collaborators' Passage, Benovský's Passage, Passage of Hopes) and not big hall spaces (Slovak Speleological Society Hall), formed mostly on intersection of tectonic faults. The discovery chimney, which descends to depth from the upper opening to the intersection of the Entrance Passage (Vstupná chodba) with the Collaborators' Passage, has a character of doline chimney.
A rich sinter fill decorates fissure underground spaces. Flowstone draperies with indented facing are typical for this cave. Flowstone waterfalls and flowstone structures, pagoda-like stalagmites and various forms of stalactites occur her. Also small flowstone pools, supplied with water by percolating rainfall water, can be found here.
