The Raj (Paradise) Cave is considered the most beautiful karst cave in Poland, is also one of the few caves in the country electrically lit.

The entrance to the cave leads through drifts made ​​at the same place where once the old mouth of the cave was. Visitng start off in the pavilion, where you can see the remains of mammoth, woolly rhinoceros, cave bear. There is also a reconstructed Neanderthal family camp with three life-size figures.

Just after the drift there is a large initial chamber connecting three corridors of the cave, and more chambers follow:
Złomisk chamber with the famous stalactite column called Harp,
Column chamber, where you can admire the stalactites, fossil corals, ponds and rice fields. A large attraction are pisoids, or loose formations in the shape of balls, called cave pearls.
Stalactites room where you can see both stalactites and stalagmites
The High chamber, where the ceiling is 8 m above the walking path.

Walking takes place only in the company of a guide and takes about 45 minutes. You should bring warm clothes because it's cold in the cave.
