Macocha Abyss, Czechia 3


The Macocha Abyss, also known as the Macocha Gorge, is the deepest sinkhole in Central Europe. This impressive, 138 meters (452 feet) deep, located near Brno, is part of the Punkva Caves and the Punkva River flows through it. It’s a popular tourist site, suitable for different types of travelers, including casual and more advanced visitors, who have more advanced technical caving experience.

The gorge trip includes two main parts. One with its grand domes and deep abysses, and the other section is a web of caves with stalagmites formations. There are two viewing platforms to immerse the view of the gorge. The Upper Bridge was constructed in 1882, and the Lower Bridge was built in 1899. While the top-down view of the gorge is complimentary for all to admire, roaming the Punkevni Jeskyne (caves) would require an entrance fee.
