A Cave Visit in 1980

Image: The entrance to the cave is located in a green dolina, a few hundred meters from Škocjan. An artificial tunnel at the bottom of this depression leads to the rear end of the cave.
Image: the  Rimstone Pools in Škocjanske Jame are among the most famous pools of the world. They are dry, which means they stopped growing.
Image: The portal of the cave. This is the natural entrance to the cave, below the village of Škocjan at the bottom of the Great Doline.
Image: The cave below the town Škocjan (St. Kanzian). The cave collapsed on both sides of the town, or, the town is built on a natural bridge. This is the view through this natural bridge, from one dolina to the next.
