Výstraha

Popoludní sa ojedinele môžu vyskytnúť búrky. Drevené rebríky v rokline Veľký Sokol sú v zlom technickom stave, prechod roklinou je veľmi náročný. V zlom technickom stave je tiež sústava drevených rebríkov v doline Bieleho potoka a to od ústia Kyseľa po Klauzy - zelený TZCH, zvýšte opatrnosť.

The Slovak Paradise is located in the eastern part of the Slovak Republic, in the north of the Slovenské rudohorie mountains, where along with the Muránska planina plateau it creates the complex of the Spišsko-gemerský kras (Spiš-Gemer Karst). In the west it borders the Nízke Tatry (Low Tatras) mountains, in the north the Hornádska kotlina basin.

The national park covers an area of 19 763 hectares, and the size of protected zone of national park is 13 011 hectares.

The Slovak Paradise has predominantly the character of a karst plateau. Originally a single plateau is now divided by gorges into several karst plateaus. The most typical are the Glac, the Geravy, the Pelc and the Skala ones. The best preserved and largest is the Glac plateau in the central part of the Slovak Paradise with an area of more than 3 km2.

Gorges, formed by brooks flowing from the plateaus, have narrow sections with precipitous cliffs, and are rich in rocky steps with waterfalls. Except one, all are located in the northern part of the territory. There are canyons cut into the outskirts of the Slovak Paradise – in the north the canyon of the Hornád river, in the south the canyon of the Hnilec river.

The water formed extensive cave systems inside the limestone massif. Out of more than 450 registered caves, ravines and sinkholes there is one unique site inscribed on the UNESCO’s World Natural Heritage List. It is located in Duča cave complex, which consists of the Dobšinská ľadová jaskyňa (Dobšinská Ice Cave),the Stratenská jaskyňa cave and the Psie diery cave with a total length of 21 737 m and a depth of 194 m.
