#2 of 11 in Nature in Moravia
The Moravian Karst is a karst landscape and protected nature reserve to the north of Brno in the eastern part of the Czech Republic, located near the town of Blansko. It encompasses a number of notable geological features, including roughly 1100 caverns and gorges and covers an area of roughly 92 km². Currently, five of the cave systems, Býčí skála Cave and Stránská skála are open for public tours and exploration.This region is also home to one of the most important single geological features in the Czech Republic, the Macocha Abyss, a gorge 138 m deep, which was formed when the ceiling of an underground cave chamber collapsed. Macocha Abyss is also the place where the Punkva River begins to run underground through the Punkva cave system, and two small pools of water are visible at the surface.The Moravian Karst is a popular tourist attraction in the local area, and large numbers of tourists visit in the summer months. In addition to caverns, the nature preserve also contains well-marked bicycle trails and hiking paths to explore.

  • It is a must to do in the Czech Republic. The place is spectacular. It is good to take air and to learn more about the geology. We were lucky to get tickets for Punkva posing early in person.

  • The Moravian Karst is a beautiful natural monument. I visited all of its publicly accessible caves and peered into the many other, less well known. Each has something of her, beautiful. I'm sure I have to highly recommend to everyone. Personally, I consider this place one of the most beautiful in the country.

  • Really beautiful place. I wish I could spend more time there and explore the nature and caves. Will definitely come back again!
  • Very good excursion point not very far from Brno. Make sure you pre-book your tickets for the cave you're interested in.
  • Gently orient on tourists with dogs, even small ones. :-(
  • Beutiful area. Largest cave system i've ever visited.
  • Great great place! Take a bicycle ride ghrough Suchy Zleb and Pusty Zleb gorges
