Description

The Zbrašovské aragonitové jeskyně (Aragonite Caves of Zbrasov) are famous for aragonite speleothems, as the name already says. The geological situation in this cave was unique: despite karst solution mechanisms, thermal activity from below influenced the cave development. In the cave meteoric water from the surface and hot mineral water merged. The cave is much warmer than ordinary caves, with 14°C it is the warmest cave of the country.

There is no village named Zbrasov, there is no village at all, but because of the thermal spring there is a spa named Teplice nad Bečvou. It is located south of Hranice, on the western side of river Recva. It is reached on road 35 towards Valašské Meziříčí from Hranice, which runs south on the other side of the river. At Hranice an acces road branches of and crosses the river. Unfortunately there is very limited parking space at the spa, so we recommend the parking lot at Teplice train station. Following the road 35 we soon reach the train station, the parking lot is supervised. The cave is right on the other side of river Recva, to reach it you have to walk a few hundred meters north to the bridge.

The entrance to Zbrasov cave is located uphill. A newly renovated entrance building offers ticket office, a small shop and other infrastructure. The exit is at the foot of the hill, so if you do not need to return uphill, do not leave anything at the entrance.
