Description

Demanovska Cave of Liberty was formed by the Demanovska river and has four levels. It is famous for its speleothems. Beneath normal dripstones, the cave contains numerous calcite crystals and helictites. The calcite crystals, sometimes looking like water lilies, were formed in cave lakes.

A unique experience is the music, written while the composer sat in the cave, which features in the excellent sound and light presentation.
