Top caves in Slovakia

Slovakia has many interesting caves and caves systems.
Once you are in Slovakia, it is worth to experience some of them.
Fairly good list of Slovak caves and some details about them.
Up to 44 caves and abysses in Slovakia, which are part of the most important natural heritage of Slovakia, are declared national natural monuments.

If you are just visiting Slovakia I don’t expect you will visit them all. However these are the best in my view:
