Transfer in Moravian Karst

Organized public transport system for visitors to the Punkevni Caves was introduced in 1993, and was one of the consequences of gradual closing down of the roads in Pusty and Suchy Zleb to traffic. Motorcars, smog, chaos, unauthorized parking, and noise - all disappeared from polluted and crowded roads. Road and the parking lot serving the Punkevni Caves, that used to be blocked with automobiles, now have the character of a pedestrian zone. 



The means of public transport that convey the visitors to the Punkevni Caves from terminal parking lot Skalni Mlyn, consist of two road trains, and cable way connection that takes the visitors from the Punkevni Caves to observation bridges at Macocha Abyss.


Cableway has been providing this service from 1995, and it is regarded as being one of the most environment-friendly transport means. What is more, it has been set into the landscape in the most sensitive and functional way and there can, therefore, be no doubt about its importance. Since its opening on May 6, 1995, the cable way has safely conveyed hundreds of thousands of visitors. It provides welcomed alternative to all those visitors to Moravian Karst who find walking difficult, and to those who simply do not feel like walking. Apart from everything else, the cableway has made elimination of all motor traffic from Suchy Zleb.
