Set off from the pier for a one-hour scenic drive from Opatija into the mountains to the popular Vrelo Cave, estimated to be more than 3½ million years old. This 1,000-foot-long cave has lighting systems installed, so you can enjoy the wonders of the continuously flowing underground stream, as well as the magnificent formations of stalactites and stalagmites.
Spectacular ancient dripstones are found throughout the cave system. Dating from between 500 and 600 thousand years old, these rare forms of dripstones are created by frequent fluctuations in the level of underground water flows. Use your imagination to recognize some particularly interesting formations including a pillar known as "the Bishop", and stalagmites known as "the Madonna" and "the Dwarves".
After leaving the cave, take a scenic drive to Bajer Lake and the picturesque village of Fuzine, located in the Mountain District for a short visit. From there, drive through the countryside to a traditional Vagabund mountain home to sample Croatian Gorski Kotar cuisine for lunch before your return drive to the pier.
Please note: Wear comfortable walking shoes and bring a jacket. This tour is not recommended to pregnant women, or guests with back problems. The entire length of the cave is illuminated, and the temperature inside the cave is a steady 45°F throughout the year.
