The Balcarka cave is situated in a picturesque karst valley near Ostrov u Macochy. The underground labyrinth of corridors, fissures and caves has two floors. The entrance portal of the cave is a significant paleonthological and archaeological locality. It is a place where bones of Pleistocene animals were found as well as stone and bone instruments and fireplaces of people of the Early Stone Age. Further parts of the cave were discovered in stages in the years 1923–1948. These caves can boast of unique, very rich, varied and colourful stalactite and stalagmite decorations. The parts called “Gallery” and “Natural corridor” are among the most beautiful sights of the Moravian Karst. Remarkable are also the circular abysses, the “Rotundas”.
