Czech Republic - About the Country

The Czech Republic has twelve show caves. They are managed by the Agency for Nature Conservation and Landscape Protection of the Czech Republic (see the link below).

As the Czech Republic is a former (?) socialist country, all natural monuments are owned and maintained by the state. The caves are all maintained by the same government office.

But this is by no means bad for the caves. As the officials understood the importance of the show caves for the tourism industry, they made big efforts in the last years to develop the caves while keeping them as intact as possible. Many caves have newly renovated paths and rails, the lights are modernized and the brochures and publications have a very high quality.

The entrance fees are below average, but thats merely a result of the exchange rate. The moderate prices for western tourist equal a small fortune for the Czech citizens.

The written Czech language uses a Roman alphabet with some special characters. Our main goal with names is, to display them in the most original form that is possible. So names and link descriptions may contain such special characters.

Unfortunately some browsers are not able to display special characters. Some browsers understand the special characters of the respective operating system, which unfortunately will produce strange results on all other operating systems. Showcaves.com uses the standardized  W3C definitions. This may result in fancy placeholders like black rectangles or character entities. We are sorry for that, but after all its the best we can do.

If you have such problems, think about upgrading your browser. Many new browsers are free, like  Mozilla and  Opera.
