The subterranean pearl of the Little Carpathians
Driny Cave is the only cave in western Slovakia that is open to the public and one of the main tourist attractions of the Little Carpathians. Although it is not Slovakia’s largest or most richly decorated cave, it has many bats that fly above visitors’ heads during the 30-minute tour. The cave features a system of relatively narrow fissure passages with beautiful dripstone decoration.
Visitors will also see flowstone curtains with serrated trim, lakes, waterfalls, pagoda stalagmites and various shapes of stalactite.
The car park is 1 km from the village of Smolenice, next to the Jahodník recreation centre. The cave is reached from the car park via a 1 km forest trail with an elevation gain of 100 m, ending in 100 steps.
