Golubnjaca Pecina (Bear Cave) is part of the Plitvice Lakes National Park. A wooden path along the lakes and stone steps lead up to the cave entrance. Once more a bear cave, with two enormous entrance portals, 24 m and 46 m meters high, a good location for bears. This cave is visible from far, from the lookout at Entrance 1 as well as from where the Lower Lakes canyon starts. It is located on the right shore of the Korana brook.

The cave is 160 m long and equipped with 230 concrete steps and a concrete bridge. Once it also had electric light and a cave guide, and it was closed by a gate. But the electric light and the speleothems were destroyed, and so today the cave is open for self guided tours during a visit to the park. Bring a good torch and wear appropriate clothes.
