In order to preserve this unique geomorphological monument of nature, it is necessary to obey certain rules of conduct.
Cerovac caves are ‘alive’ meaning that the process of forming speleothem still goes on due to the constant water activity. It takes approximately 10 years for 1 mm of speleothem decorations to be created. Sometimes it can take up to several decades. Therefore, do not touch and do not damage cave ornaments so as not to disturb hundreds of years of nature’s activities.
Although we encourage curiosity and creativity, do not leave the walkways and obey the guide’s
