Ice Cave - Paradana, the Trnovo Forest

The eternal ice and snow caves are among the karst phenomena present on the Trnovo Plateau especially intriguing. In the East of the Trnovo Forest, due to the classical description of the inversion of the vegetation belts, the 385 m deep and 1550 m long world-famous and as a Natural Reserve protected Giant Ice Cave in Paradan can be encountered. In the past in the Ice Cave 10 to 40 kg ice blocks used to be cut and brought to the surface and then by night on carts to Gorizia or Trieste, where the ice was sold to the ships and transported even as far as Egypt. Descending into the Paradana Giant Ice Cave, which is a protected Natural Reserve, one can clearly observe the distinct zones of predominantly alpine flora.
