BIELSKA CAVE EXCURSION ORGANIZED DURING THE HIGH SEASON: TUESDAY, THURSDAY, SATURDAY
During the 70-minute tour, we overcome a level difference of 125 meters, and the entire accessible route for tourists is 1,370 meters long and consists of over 800 steps. The route leads through corridors and chambers where we can see small lakes and waterfalls. Bielska Cave also consists of chambers, and they even have their own names: Great Waterfall Chamber, Golden Lake Chamber, Hell, Long Corridor, Bandit's Chamber, Palm Hall, Concert Hall, Starvation Abyss, Cactus Grove.
When going on the excursion, it is important to remember to dress appropriately because the temperature inside the cave ranges between 5 and 6.3 °C, and the relative humidity is 90-97%. In order to enhance the attractiveness of this place, the lower part of the cave was closed in the 1930s to keep it permanently filled with ice. As a result, frost weathering of speleothems and rocks occurs in some parts of the mountains. It is also worth noting that throughout the year, the temperature ranges from -2.2 to +5.1 °C.
BIELSKA CAVE AS A CONCERT VENUE
An interesting place in Bielska Cave is one of the chambers called the Concert Hall because it has excellent acoustics. For this reason, classical music concerts have been organized here for some time. One can also hear interesting melodies created by water droplets falling onto the surface of the underground lake.
First stage of the excursion:
Štrbské Pleso is located in the High Tatras, it is the second largest lake on the Slovak side and is situated at an altitude of 1,346 meters above sea level on the so-called Štrbské Tarasy. The lake is often compared to the well-known Morskie Oko. It is at a similar altitude but smaller, with a surface area of 19.76 hectares.
On the southern shore of the lake, we can find a wooden bridge, sometimes referred to as a jetty. Standing on it, we can admire the beautiful panorama of the Tatra Mountains, and nearby there is a harbor for kayaks and boats, which returned to the lake in 2008. For about 100 years, they were a tourist attraction in this place.
Taking a walk around the lake is a good idea to spend our two hours of free time. It is enough to cover the distance around it. This area is magical and, apart from beautiful views, it also captivates with its rich mountain vegetation. Bielska Cave and the lake create an interesting combination of two distinct places. Each of them presents the beauty of nature in its own unique way.
"The lake is the most beautiful and striking element of the landscape. It is the eye of the earth, in which we peer and measure the depth of our own nature."

in the High Tatras that can be entered
Bielska Cave is located in the High Tatras in Slovakia, on the northern slope of Kobylí Vrch. It is recognized as a national natural monument and is characterized by an exceptionally rich speleothem decoration, where visitors can admire interesting limestone formations, stalactites, stalagmites, and draperies. The entrance to Bielska Cave is located at an altitude of 972 meters above sea level. It has been known to local residents since ancient times, but it was not until 1881 that three residents of Biała Spiska decided to venture deeper inside. One year after this event, the cave was partially opened to visitors. In 1896, the cave was electrified, allowing further exploration, which led to the discovery of additional passages totaling 3,829 meters horizontally and 168 meters vertically. In 1979, Bielska Cave was declared a protected natural monument.
