very good!!!
I loved the caves pathways and lighting. What an exemplary place to walk through and clear the mind, The temperature was cool and ceiling had pointed rocks
Touring the dark, stony caves was scary for me, but I caught up. Got to witness ancient inscriptions and ancient artefacts that were utilized by ancient population.
We had an amazing time during our trip through the caves and the guide was awesome and informative. Lovely peaceful place to visit.
I visited the Cerovacs Caves this weekend and was not disappointed at all! I am so glad I decided to dedicate a full weekend to explore them. I took a beginner's tour of the caves, had lots of fun, and learned so much about them. I also took my children on a tour, they were very impressed. The guides were extremely knowledgeable and were able to answer all of our questions. We then decided to take an extended tour of the caves which was worth it!!
