Veliki Slap Cave

In the summer I hiked around the Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia. It has some well known caves (more of them in another blog article) but I also run into a small cave on the path to the biggest, 78-meter waterfall, Veliki Slap.

The cave is maybe 15 or 20 meters long, a small tunnel with some stalactite forms. It can be found from the path descending from the hills above down to the waterfall, just before the short man-made tunnel on the path.

The coordinates to this cave are approximately N 44.90182 E 15.60938.
