Caves of the Gemer region
No region of Slovakia is as rich in caves as Horný Gemer. So far, more than 1,300 caves and abysses have been discovered in the plains of the Slovak Karst. Gemer caves are unique. In the Krásnohorská cave you can admire the biggest stalagmite in Europe, in Gombasecká 3 meter thin stalaktite-straws, the most beautiful aragonite cave in Europe and one of the three accessible in the world, can also be found on Gemer, not far from Ochtiná. The caves of the Slovak and Aggtelek karst were inscribed on the UNESCO World Natural Heritage List in 1995.
