Jasovská cave

Cave

The Jasovská cave is situated on the eastern edge of the Slovenský kras karst. Thanks to its significance and unique ornamentation, it was included into the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Formed by the activity of the ground reach of the Bodva river, the Jasovská jaskyňa cave was already inhabited by the Neolithic man. The locals knew about the cave in the Middle Ages and used it as hiding in time of Tartar or Turkish raids.

The entrance of the Jasovská jaskyňa cave is situated in the eastern face of the Jasovská skala rock, 257 m above sea level. Its passageways are arranged in five levels and cover a total length of 2,811 metres. The sightseeing route is 720 m long and takes about 45 minutes.

The cave is extra rich in forms and colours of its dripstone ornamentation. Many species of bats inhabit this cave.

The cave was probably discovered by members of the monastic order of the Premonstratensians from the local monastery, who also made the cave available for the public as early as 1846. A number of historical inscriptions, earliest of which goes back the era of the Hussite Wars and is dated 1452, have been preserved on the cave's walls. An area called the Bat Cathedral is used for speleotherapy and climatotherapy of asthma and allergic diseases.

Štyridsaťosem metrov vysoká štíhla veža s kovovým kohútom na samom vrchu. To je Kalvínsky kostol na Hrnčiarskej ulici v Košiciach. Jednoduchý interiér, pestrá história. Pamiatka, ktorú by ste pri spoznávaní Košíc nemali vynechať. V rokoch 1805 - 1811 zo starého trojposchodového vojenského skladu v hradbách mesta kalvíni vystavali svoj kostol. Do charakteristicky jednoduchého dreveného interiéru kostola umiestnili iba bohoslužobné nádoby, pôvodne uložené v drevenom chráme na Moldavskej ulici. V kostole okrem výzdoby chýba i oltár. Vnútornému priestoru dominuje krásna dobová kazateľnica a vynikajúci organ pochádzajúci roku 1813. Veža kostola bola do dnešnej výšky dostavaná v roku 1895. Zdobí ju kovový kohút pochádzajúci z roku 1689, ktorý kedysi sídlil na veži Dómu sv. Alžbety. Kostol má úctyhodnú kapacitu 800 ľudí. Objekt a okolie počas rokov striedavo patrili armáde, uršulínskemu a kalvínskemu rádu. Dnes je celý váš a čaká, kým v jeho jednoduchosti objavíte podstatu pokoja a krásy.
