Dobsinska Ice Cave, Dobsina

Tour subterranean tunnels filled with a host of formations at Dobsinska Ice Cave, part of a World Heritage-listed series of caverns. Tucked away in a secluded part of the Western Carpathian Mountains, the cave reaches nearly 1.5 km (0.9 mi) back into the rock. Join a guided tour, the only way to access the cave, and get up-close looks at towering stalagmites, hanging stalactites, and other ice structures as you walk the tour path. By volume, the ice makes it one of the largest caves of its kind in the world. Temperatures within hover around freezing year-round and the ground is slippery, so dress accordingly and wear sensible walking shoes.

  • The masses of the lading in the underground which always fascinate me. From spring always the most beautiful ice decorations. In summer fantastic schation. I visited it already about 5x and certainly I will go again.

  • Nice exit from the parking lot near the cave, after a modified sidewalk. The cave Spectacular, the steam schation in the summer months. Who likes natural beauty and can appreciate their beauty, so I recommend to visit. Nothing suitable for lazy people who have a problem to train a small hill, and people who await them will be in the cave to wait for Nicholas with the package. It's a unique, beautiful place.

  • Very nice ice cave. Tours are guided and you can not stay behind group, the lights go out behind you. Photography is for additional payment only, but better option is to book individual tour to take photos in slower pace. Cold, wet and poor lightning. Otherwise nice. Check the tour schedule and arrive 20 minutes before.
  • Just for those who are planning to come in these days be aware cave is closed till 15.5
