Dear Discoverers!

During this day trip you will see the main landmarks of the Moravský kras Protected Landscape Area (Moravian Karst) – The Punkva Caves and the Macocha Abyss.

It is relatively far from Prague, some 240 km /150 miles to drive and 3 hours by train, but definitely worth the journey!

HIGHLIGHTS
• Guided tour of the Punkva Caves including a boat ride on the underground part of the Punkva river
• 138 meters / 453 ft deep Macocha Abyss
• A nice hike in the early spring woods of the Moravian Karst Protected Landscape Area

LOGISTICS
We will meet at 7:30 AM at Prague Main Train Station, in front of the main ticket office.

The journey to Moravský kras will take about 3 hours and then another cca 30 min of easy walk on a paved, traffic-free road to the entrance of the Punkva Caves.

The guided tour of the Caves, including reaching the bottom of the Macocha Abyss and a boat ride on the underground part of the Punkva river, takes about 60 minutes and will be conducted in English.

We will then hike on to look to the 138 meters depth of Macocha from the top. It is pretty spectacular!
After a late lunch (around 14:00), an easy walk in the woods will bring us back to the starting point.

Expected arrival back to Prague is around 20:15 but a delay is possible. Don’t plan anything important after the trip!

DIFFICULTY: Easy
Altogether you will have to walk for cca 8 km on the surface and another about 1,5 km in the cave. This will include one steep ascent and descent. Good walking shoes are necessary!

FOOD
Bring water and a snack. We will stop in a restaurant for lunch at around 14:00.

What else to bring with you:
Firm, non-slippery shoes; Warm clothes – it is about 7°C /44°F in the cave!; umbrella or rain coat if rain is expected
