Cave Baredine

Get to know the mysterious play of nature which took thousands of years to develop, far away from daylight and the eye of man... Visit the underground world of the CAVE BAREDINE.

This cave has an abundance of stalagmites and stalactites, underground sculptures created by patient and long-lasting performance of water. In this way incredible dripstones were created, the most prominent of which are the 10 meter long, high "curtains", a very realistic statue of Madonna, the body of the shepherdess Milka, the leaning tower of Pisa, the snowman - a torchbearer who became the trademark of the cave. In one of the halls you will pass by a cave 4 m wide and 66 m deep which descends to underground lakes.

On your walk through the cave you will pass through 5 halls, 5 galleries of abstract and realistic sculptures, a pleasant 40-minute walk along the 300 meter long path under guidance of our tour guide and "curator". Another feature of interest of this adventure is the encounter with the underground animal world: you will see the human fish (Proteus anguinus), an endemic species that lives only here, in the karst landscape, and the miniature transparent crabs and beetles. At the entrance into the cave there is a glass case where you can see the remains of the pottery of the prehistoric man. Our distant forefather had probably, during hot and dry summers, put his pots here to be filled with water, drop for drop.

Cave Baredine is situated near the place Nova Vas, in the vicinity of the towns Poreč, Višnjan and Tar.
The road that leads to the cave is marked with signs, and next to the cave is a spacious parking lot for cars and buses.
The cave is a protected geomorphologic natural monument.
The depth of the cave is 132 meters with underground lakes whose depth sometimes reaches 30 meters.
Temperature in the cave is non-varying and lies at 14oC.
Next to the cave you can find an info and ticket stand, stands where you can buy postcards and souvenirs, a roofed terrace with gastronomic offer, an ethnological collection of old agricultural machinery, a gallery for photography exhibitions and «Speleolit», the centre for speleo climbing.
For picnic lovers we have set a place with tables and benches next to the cave.
For groups of school children we can organise games on the wide meadow next to the cave.

Ethnological collection of old agricultural machinery and tractors

The cave Baredine is a special destination situated on the even plain covered with Terra rossa soil, where grapevines, olives and other autochthon cultures are grown.

In the pleasant ambience the visitors are given the opportunity to look into the history of cultivation through the ethnological collection of old agricultural machinery and tractors, some of which had until recently been used for cultivation. The most prominent in this collection are the old tractor «Fordson» model F from 1923, the stand-alone diesel motor «Satima» (testa calda) from 1934, produced in Trieste, that was used for the mill operation in one village until the introduction of electric energy, a fully running threshing machine (around 1930), and a donkey-drawn carriage (around 1910) with a preserved licence number and personal data of the owner. Those how would like to know how oil is pressed and where it was stored can have a look at the stone wheel and the oil-storage stone basin.

Children can ride the donkey Pino and get a remembrance photo.
