Geocache Description:

Very interesting cave, that is well worth visiting.
The cache is placed outside the cave, and it is not required to take the tour!
But than it would just be another point in your statistics... ;-)

Every year we spend a lot of time, in discovering Slovenia. Geo caching is a very helpful tool to find many great places there, which you normaly do not find in a tourist guide.
So we decided to add another very special place to the long list of sites to visit. We were surprized that one had placed a cache there yet.

ENG:
THE KRIŽNA JAMA (CAVE)
Križna cave is worldwide known karst cave. Its specialities are
underground lakes with sinter's barriers extremely interesting site of cave
bears' bones and naturally preserved environment for animals.

The length of all passages is over 8 km (6 miles). Air temperature inside the cave is constant through the whole year +8°C. The cave drains away water from the Southern side of Bloke plateau towards Eastern margin of Cerknica field. Križna jama is fourth in the world in number of actual cave animals (44 different species). During winter there are about 400 hibernating bats of 7 different species in the cave. The most frequent are lesser horseshoe bats (Rhinolophus hipposideros). Visitors can see some of interesting sites in the cave in one hour.

To experience secrets of intact underground you should make reservation of the long visit ( 4 hours).

SLO:
