Mladeč Caves

Discounted admission with the ORC - 21-25%

The Mladečské Caves are located in the Litovelské Pomoraví Protected Landscape Area. The complex labyrinth of fissure passages and domes is formed in the Třesín limestone hill.

They are quite probably the oldest, largest and most northern site of modern people (Cro-Magnon) in Europe, who have been shown to have lived there more than 31,000 years ago. The caves present a very irregular labyrinth of corridors and chambers and tall chimneys with remarkably-shaped walls and ceilings, with stalactites and many block cave-ins and several steep corridors.
