Visit Demanovska Caves in 2024

The Demänovská Caves are among Slovakia's most famous and most visited cave systems. Situated within the Demänovská Valley in the Low Tatras National Park, the caves are a labyrinth of tunnels, chambers, and underwater streams. They are a part of a much larger karst system, stretching over a length of more than 25 kilometers.
Of the numerous caves in the system, the most popular are Demänovská Cave of Liberty and Demänovská Ice Cave. The Cave of Liberty, known for its stunning stalactites and stalagmites formations, offers an awe-inspiring experience with guided tours showcasing different halls, each with unique geological formations. The Demänovská Ice Cave, on the other hand, is fascinating for its ice formations and a captivating play of light and shadow. The temperature inside the Ice Cave remains cold all year round, leading to intricate icicles and frozen waterfalls.
A guided tour of these caves often includes educational commentary, shedding light on the caves' history, geological formations, and importance in the study of climatology. Whether you're a spelunking enthusiast or a casual tourist, the Demänovská Caves offer an intriguing blend of natural wonder and scientific discovery.
