Bozkovske dolomitove jeskyne

I had an opportunity for a brief visit to the Bozkovské Dolomitové Jeskynĕ or the Bozkov Dolomite caves. The cave system is 1060 meters long and hosts the largest underground lake in Czech Republic.

More information about this cave can be found from the wikipedia page. A good list of show caves in Czech Republic can be found from the expat page.
