Jasovska Cave Reviews
A 45 minute trip around the caves, which have some beautiful stalactites and stalagmites. The trips leave at particular times, so worth checking online to get there at the right time. Tickets were 5.... more »
We visited 2 caves on one day, it was interesting to compare this with Domica Caves. This one includes lots more walking and some steep uneven steps, but it really is very beautiful. Again the tour.... more »
It's a beautiful cave, definitely worth visiting! Sadly, there are no audioguides for any foreign languages, but you can get the information by scanning a QR code before you enter. Overall, a great experience!
Nice cave ,but they don't have option in other languages then Slovakian. When I was translating for my husband the tourist guide seemed very annoyed, she kept talking over us . Not to mention, the way she spoke, she sounded like she is "over it"big pity as we have beautiful caves, but unable to accomodate visitors from different countries. We didn't know we have to buy sticker to take pictures, even thought i told her my husband doesn't speak Slovakian, she kept talking to him in Slovakian.My husband was very unpleasantly shocked, I was sad as I wanted to show my husband my home country.
