vchod do jeskyně Postojná ("Amerika"), (entrance to cave Postojna) Klokočské skály - Český ráj

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Pseudokrasová jeskyně Postojná, nazývaná též "Amerika", je největší jeskyní Českého ráje. Do jeskyně vede jedinný úzký vchod, kterým se dostaneme do rozlehlé síně, z níž odbočují další chodby. Celková délka chodeb je 75 metrů, jeskyně má téměř 300 m2. Jeskyně sloužila jako útočiště pravěkých lidí.

Pseudokarst cave Postojna, also called "America" is the largest cave of the Bohemian Paradise - 300 m2. There is only one, very narrow entrance. The caves served as refuge of prehistoric people.

300m2 is quite big. Is it a limestone cavern?

like. Best wishes, Andy

Not Andy, it is sandstone only - pseudokarst cave.

Archaeological research has shown the presence of humans on this place 12 thousand years BC

Lime stone caves are in other part of Bohemian Paradise - Bozkov dolomite caves. Very beautiful locality, but I have not my own pictures of it.

If You add on Google picture search query "Bozkovské jeskyně", You will see many photos of it.

Best regards, Roman

Thanks a lot, Alex. Cool and very cold too. Very very marked difference in temperature outside and inside the cave :-)

With respect, Roman

Děkuji Karle. Je to zajímavý pocit, když si člověk uvědomí, že vlezl do jeskyně, kterou prokazatelně používali lidi už před 12 tisíci lety.

Ahoj, Roman
