This exceptional system of limestone caves is located in the Kras region (literally meaning Karst). The site is one of the most famous in the world for the study of karstic phenomena. It comprises many waterfalls, caves, underground passages and tunnels (of total length about 6 kilometres and more than 200 metres deep). One of the largest known underground chambers is located here.
