Discover the most extensive karst area in Europe and become captivated by the sights of plateaus strewn with pure limestone rocks and meadows, the surfaces of which are scarred with unusual oval depressions. Explore the numerous canyons, abysses and gorges over which rugged limestone cliff faces and distinctive rock formations tower or look into mysterious crevices reaching more than 100 metres deep.
In this area of unusual aridity where rain water soaks immediately into the ground to create underground streams flowing through the numerous cave systems, you will discover fissures in the rock where springs return to the surface, picturesquely cascading over the surface of the limestone in enchanting tree shaded spots.
Complete your experience of this extraordinary environment by visiting the interconnecting cave systems where you will find stalagmite, stalactite and ice formations that are not to be matched anywhere else in Europe.
