Description

Situated in the side of the wooded called Spranek, and near to the picturesque castle of Bouzov. It is 1km south west of the village of Javoricko, called the Moravian Lidice which was destroyed by the Nazis in 1945.

This is a large cave system on three levels. The largest of several huge domes, Dom Gigantu is 56 m long, 34 m wide and 18 m high. The spacious passages display an unusually sumptuous collection of speleothems ranging from delicate straw stalactites to gigantic stalactites, curtains, snow-white and reddish rimstone pools with cave pearls and other formations. The Javoricko Caves are described as being the most beautiful in Czech Republic.
