You need to go about 15-20 minutes uphill from the parking lot to the entrance. Entries are approximately every 15 minutes (but depending on the language of the guide). The tour takes about 30 minutes, more or less you still walk on the stairs. In...More

It takes 20 minutes to climb to the entrance of the cave before you enter the cold ice cave. The cave is full of thick ice, in some places more than 25 meters, and you go through icy corridors. There is ice everywhere and yhe...More

While not as impressive as the Domica cave, the Dobsinska ice cave is phenomenal. The guided tour (in slovak unfortunately) takes you through a maze of gigantic slabs of ice. Similar to the other cave, entrance fee is about 8 euro with additional 10 if...More
