Koněprusy Caves

Koněprusy Caves (Koněpruské jeskyně) are a system of karst caves.

The caves were formed by the dissolution of limestone by groundwater. The process began millions of years ago, and it is still ongoing. The caves are home to a variety of cave formations, including stalactites, stalagmites, columns, and flowstones.

The caves are divided into three main sections: the Balcony Cave, the Golden Chamber, and the Mirror Cave. The Balcony Cave is the largest section of the caves, and it is home to some of the most impressive cave formations. The Golden Chamber is named for its golden-brown stalactites and stalagmites. The Mirror Cave is named for its smooth, reflective walls.

The caves are open to the public for guided tours. The tours last about an hour, and they take visitors through the most beautiful parts of the caves.
