TOUR OF JAVOŘÍČKO CAVES - map

The visitors come through the artificial entrance into the Debris Dome. The big space with an area of 2,000 m2 is connected with the Zátvořice Abyss and it has a gorgeous and rich dripstone decoration. The ceiling part, in particular, is impressive with a forest of stalactites of various forms and shapes. The bottom is covered with boulder debris, where you can see snowy-white crust cupolas. The Lion Abyss with a total depth of 60 metres leads from the Debris Dome. The cave tour continues through a beautifully decorated high corridor to the impressive Dome of Giants. The elongated space is dominated by up to 6-metre-high stalagmites and a wall decorated with sinter coatings, which is known as Niagara Falls. There is a beautiful view of the Dome of Giants from a path that leads visitors to the Fairytale Caves. There is rich dripstone decoration even in the smaller passages. In  the Fairytale Caves you can see e.g. thin straw stalactites, spherical stalactites and a unique transparent formation called Curtain. The corridor of the Fairytale Caves leads to the Holy Hole where the short cave tour ends. The long cave tour continues through the Virgin Caves into three successive passages of the Peace Caves: the passages of Špraněk, Vojtěchov and Březina. There is already a different nature in these spaces. The passages are 1–4 meters wide and sometimes up to 10 meters high with rich dripstone decoration. Helictites, i.e. eccentric stalactites that can be found predominantly in ceiling parts, are typical formations of the Peace Caves. The passage bends in the Doline Dome, where the spaces branch in different directions. According to one theory, the confluence of the Špraněk and Javořička brooks occurred here a long time ago. The form of some spaces indicates, however, rather the presence of a watershed. Both hydrographic versions were probably possible during various development phases of creation of the caves. Visitors pass by the Horse formation, by the turning to the Black chasm and they continue to an artificial output tunnel.
