Underground

Enthusiasts of underground areas can explore the typical karst phenomena in the Land of Celje. The devil above the entrance to the Pekel Cave awaits courageous explorers on their entry to one of the largest karst caves for tourists in Styria.

A kilometre-long path leads to the main attraction – the tallest Slovenian underground waterfall (4 metres).
The Gruska Cave is situated in the heart of the Kozjansko Regional Park. It is also called Puščavnikova (Codger’s) Cave, since its last inhabitant was a solitary codger and the cave served as his poetic inspiration.
Under a sandstone cavern in the Lurška Cave, there is a small altar next to a thermal water spring that is part of the pilgrimage route of Mary.
The altar and the entire cave have been renovated and today serve as an excellent venue for various events, attracting masses of people to this exceptional natural auditorium.
The Glija Cave is a spring of the Bistrica River and home to less known yet unique and thus protected inhabitants, a cave snail and bug. Old records state that bones of a cave bear were found next to this cave.
