But only 4 caves of the all number are open to public. There are Punkvevní jeskyně (Punkva Caves) with their underground river – during the cruise you can see there the bottom of the famous Macocha Abyss. Another cave is Kateřinská jeskyně with its unique limestone columns. The Balcarka Cave is full of colorful stalactitic decoration.

Tour 2 Pernštejn Castle   

At the first glance the massive Gothic castle, just about an hour drive from Brno, is a strong and impregnable fortress. Special layout of its sections tells the story of its complicated architectural development. The original core of the castle was built probably in the 13th century. Radical adaptations came in the 15th and 16th century. The castle is one of the best-preserved in our country - its interesting architectonic details will catch the attention of experts, as well as laymen, its mazy connecting passages and narrow staircases will charm both children and grown-ups.
