Visit Koneprusy Cave in 2024

Discovered in 1950, the Koněprusy Caves unveil three levels stretching across 2,050 meters. The caves are renowned for their unique geological formations, including the famed Koněprusy Roses, a type of stalactite formation found nowhere else. Limestone deposits in the cave date back 400 million years, and its corridors and chambers are adorned with awe-inspiring calcium formations and paleontological treasures.
But it's not just the geology that makes Koněprusy Caves intriguing; it's also the history. Archaeological excavations have uncovered evidence of prehistoric human habitation, including Paleolithic tools and Neolithic pottery. The caves were also used in the Middle Ages as a secret mint for counterfeit coin production.
Guided tours are available, leading visitors through a 620-meter-long path, revealing the caves' most stunning formations and historical aspects. A constant temperature of about 9°C (48°F) makes it a refreshing getaway during the summer and a relatively mild destination in winter.
