Discover the scenic beauty of the Moravian Karst, a protected natural area located north of Brno. Peer into the depths of the Macocha Abyss, travel along the Punkva River into the cave system, and enjoy lunch at an area restaurant on this 6-hour tour.
What to Expect
The Moravian Karst of Central Europe boasts a wide array of geological features, including more than 1,000 caverns and gorges. One of the few accessible features is the Macocha Abyss, formed when the ceiling of a cave collapsed. The Abyss is 138 meters deep, and it is from here that the Punkva River begins to run underground.
On this 6-hour excursion you'll explore the Punkva* cave system by eco-train and then by boat down the Punkva River, which feeds 2 rock pools and flows through rock massifs in the caves.
After the boat ride you’ll take a cable car to the Upper Bridge. Marvel at the views into the depths of the Macocha Abyss from either the Upper Bridge or Lower Bridge.
Enjoy lunch at a restaurant on the Upper bridge or in Krtiny Castle Restaurant before beginning the return trip to Brno.
On the way back you’ll stop in the market town of Křtiny to see the pilgrimage church, which was built in the 18th century.
