Educational events

Environmental-educational lectures

The Slovak Caves Administration employees render on demand environmental-educational lectures within the framework of their working possibilities at the occasion of various events (Speleological Evenings in the Slovak Museum of Nature Protection and Caving, Earth Day, accompanying events during exhibitions, etc.).


Since 2002 every year a seminar is organized for the speleological rangers, where except for vocational lectures on natural cave values, geology, geomorphology, biology and hydrology of caves, discussions are held on safety of movement in caves, methods of first aid and about cases of breaking the law.

A similar orientation have seminars for show caves guides, where except for their vocational improvement an emphasis is laid on the ways of environmental education in caves (higher quality of commentary in cave, methods of education, etc.). By now 10 such seminars were organized.


International Year of Caves and Karst

The Slovak Caves Administration is joining the effort of the International Union of Speleology to celebrate the year 2021 as the International Year of Caves and Karst.

Cave visit with small children

Dear visitors, due to increased visitation of parents with very small children (circa up to 3 - 4 years of age), we would like to kindly ask you to have a rucksack baby carrier with you for visiting the more demanding caves in given time. This recommendation concerns all caves but the most concerned are the following ones: Demänovská Cave of Liberty, Belianska Cave, Dobšinská Ice Cave, Demänovská Ice Cave, Harmanecká Cave. We also ask you to consider visiting the cave with your crying child, which could disturb the other visitors. Thank you for understanding and we wish you a nice experience.
