The Punkva Caves can be found in Pustý Žleb, about 1 km from the Skalní mlýn information centre. The caves were discovered in stages in the years 1909–1933 by Professor Absolon’s group of speleologists. The visitors walk through mighty underground spaces and corridors decorated with stalactites and stalagmites, as far as the bottom of the world-famous Macocha (=Step Mother) abyss. The abyss is 138,7 m deep, with fascinating ground dimensions: 174 by 76 m. The foot walk is followed by a motor boat ride along the Punkva underground river. The ride includes the visit to the Masaryk Cave, one of the most beautiful caves of the Moravian Karst. The Punkva Caves are an extension of the longest cave system in the Czech Republic, the Amateur Cave, whose corridors are over 35 km long.
