    Grapceva Cave

    Grapceva cave interior
    4 more images

    During our "safari" trip we visited Grapceva cave, a hidden well preserved cave with interesting history - archaeologists have discovered that this cave was not inhabited, but was used as a place of worship.
    Interesting "sculptures" of stalactites/stalagmites, no wonder people found deeper meaning in their magical forms.

    The guide was a bit clumsy and brought only two lamps so we had to walk very carefully, so bring your lamps if you want to see the whole interior.
    Soon they plan to bring electricity and illuminate the cave properly, but that has to be done carefully in order to save the fragile habitat of bats and other tiny creatures and organisms living here.

    Entrance fee 30 Kunas per person.

    Jelsa is situated in the middle of the north coast of the island of Hvar. The settlement is concentrated by the sea while the hinterland is surrounded by dense pine woods on the sloping hills of the island's ridge. Jelsa is the only place on the island with an abundance of fresh water, which is the cause of more luxuriant vegetation than in the other areas of the island.
