Vidovec cave

This cave is located below the village of Božakovo. Together with the karst cave Zdenc, they form the Vidovec – Zdenc cave system. Vidovec is one of the longest water caves in Bela krajina. It was formed by Vidovec stream just a few meters below the surface. Entrance into the cave is strictly forbidden without cavers!

The entrance to the cave is located below the rocky bottom, behind which the entrance hall opens. From here, only a few meters wide water tunnel continues with a shallow underground channel. The lathe is cut into the loam. The trench is extremely dynamic and difficult to pass in places. It flows in the direction of the Zdenc cave. After 270 meters, it ends with a siphon. The cave is dominated by bare, erosion-treated walls.
