The Punkva Caves can be found in Pusty Zleb, about 1 km from the Hotel Skalni mlyn. The caves were discovered in stages in the years 1909–1933 by Professor Absolon’s group of speleologists. The visitors walk through mighty underground spaces and corridors decorated with stalactites and stalagmites as far as the bottom of the world-famous Macocha (=Step Mother) abyss. The abyss is 138,7 m deep, with fascinating ground dimensions: 174 by 76 m.

The foot walk is followed by a motor boat ride along the Punkva underground river. The ride includes the visit to the Masaryk Cave, one of the most beautiful caves of the Moravian Karst. The Punkva Caves are an extension of the longest cave system in the Czech Republic, the Amateur Cave, whose corridors are over 30 km long.

The guided cave tour lasts about 60 minutes and covers 720 m of passageway (including number of stairs) and water cruise (450 m). Bring a light jacket, as the cave temperature is about 8,7 °C (47 °F).

The means of public transport that convey the visitors to the Punkevni Caves from terminal parking lot Skalni Mlyn, consist of two road trains, and cable way connection that takes the visitors from the Punkevni Caves to observation bridges at Macocha Abyss.
