Gombasecká Cave

Gombasecká jaskyňa

The Gombasecká Cave represents a fluviokarst outlet cave which is 1,525 m long. The two floors consist of oval, river modeled as well as fissure passages, which are in places widened by collapses into halls and domes. The upper floor is situated 5 to 10 m above the active riverbed of the Black Brook, which flows in the lower parts of the cave. Suchá chodba (Dry Passage), located on the upper floor, was formed by waters of unknown origin, which rise intermittently through the 10 m deep well in the Mramorová sieň (Marble Hall) also today. The cave is unique by thin straw stalactites which can reach as much as 3 m length. Also other forms of stalactites, stalagmites, sinter curtains, coatings and crusts can be found here. Air temperature in the cave ranges between 9.0 and 9.4 °C and its relative humidity between 95 and 97 %.
