The ancient legend of shepherd girl, Catherine, who sought a lost sheep in the cave, but died there when she herself lost her way. The cave now bears her name. The place around the portal provides evidence that, the cave inhabited by Paleolithic man and by the people of some earlier cultures. The cave entrance was used as a shelter and also a ritual place as presented in the exhibition.

BRNO – Moravian Karst – Punkva Caves – P2

Punkva cave –

The Moravian Karst is the biggest and most significant karst region in the Czech Republic. Its attractions include several subterranean areas, with the greatest interest traditionally being in the Punkva Caves, where, apart from cathedrals of stalagmites and stalactites, you can also visit the bottom of Macocha Abyss and take a boat along the subterranean Punkva River.

The caves are located in the Pustý žleb canyon, 2 km from the tourist information centre and Skalní mlýn restaurant upstream along the Punkva river. If you don’t want to walk, you can take the tourist train from the mill. The journey, which lasts about an hour, leads through massive rock cathedrals decorated with stalagmites and stalactites to the bottom of Macocha Abyss, continuing with a motorboat journey along the deep, greenish waters of the subterranean Punkva river. The journey is interrupted for a visit to the Masaryk cathedral, one of the most beautiful subterranean spaces in the Moravian Karst.

A visit to the bottom of Macocha Abyss is a stunning experience for big and small. The Abyss reaches a depth of nearly 140 metres. The lower lake that can be seen at the bottom of the Abyss, however, is forty metres deeper! You can also look into Machocha from above, from two lookout bridges. Leave the Punkva Caves via a cable car (the only one in South Moravia!) then walk back to Skalní mlýn.

To enjoy Punkva, you need to walk and need to climb at places. The interesting piece of Punkva Cave is the Eye View in the Middle and the boat ride in the deep.

How to reach –

Public Transport –

From Brno, Catch a train from Main train station which goes to Blansko , Its a 30 min travel from Brno to Blansko. Once you reach Blansko, you can get Bus number 226 to reach Skalni Mlyn . It will take 15 to 20 min to reach Skalni Mlyn from Blansko.From Skalni Mlyn, you would need to take toy train to reach Punka Caves . It just 10 min from Skalni Mlyn.

Note : If you are travelling on a weekend, remember , bus frequency is very limited .

You can also book a cab from brno, but it would be expensive, so the choice is yours as I would suggest to go by Public transport.

Punkva caves

The Punkva Caves are part of Large Cave System created by Water courses that have flowed for millenia from the North in the karstified limestone region. These streams are in fact tributaries of the subterranean punka reiver and bila voda stream. It was these which cut out the Amateurs cave system to a length of 35KM.
