PRICING AND BOOKING
Caving - unique addition to your holiday itinerary
This cave is the longest one on the coast. A speleologist who was looking for a shelter from a strong wind discovered it accidentally. There are two main channels in the cave; however, only one of them is open to public. The other contains fossil remains of a man from Bronze Age and remains of a cave bear. Luckily, the cave is preserved in its natural state. That is why only small groups can visit it.
Rovanjska is located 30km from Zadar in a beautiful bay. In the vicinity of this charming village there are so many interesting places you should visit while you’re there – canyon of river Zrmanja, National Park Paklenica, mountain Velebit. All of these places offer not only beautiful nature but also different activities for dynamic vacation.
STALACTITES AND STALAGMITES
Mineral called calcite is building material of stalactites and stalagmites. When water drips through a cave ceiling it produces stalactites. For this reason they hang from the ceiling. On the other hand, stalagmite is an upward-growing formation. It is produced when water drips on the floor of the cave. Stalactites and stalagmites often have most unusual, artistic shapes.
