Karst Features

Image: Veliki naravni most, a natural bridge in the Rakov National Park near Postojna in Slovenia.

Karst areas, are areas with a special geology. Most caves of the world are located in those areas.

Karst has several other geological features beneath caves, which are interesting too. I tried to add some of them to showcaves.com, because they are interesting and sometimes very spectacular.

Nearly all of those objects are protected! Please respect this! Even if they are not protected by the law, please be careful and do not damage anything on your vistit.

It is hard to get information on this kind of sight, so the number of described places is much less than the number of show caves.

Typical objects of this kind are sinks, swallow holes, springs, Karst lakes, and natural bridges.
