Definitely worth the short guided tour. Quite a few unexpected facts about the cave revealed by the guide.

Whoever comes in Arandjelovac should visit and tour the cave and the museum, the cave is not large but is sufficient to inform us about some historical details

Yesterday, we visited Risovaca cave in Arandjelovac town. Behind quite an unimpressive sign and outside appearance, is one one of the richest caves in Europe: over eight thousand artifacts have been found here! It is really an extraordinary place to visit. The tour is guided and the guide is outstanding, making you appreciate all three aspects of this special place: geological, paleontological and archeological.

I was surprised to learn that animals such as hairy rhinoceros, cave lion, giant bear and giant deer once roamed this area, before the ice age wiped them all out. Some of these animals are on display in their natural size!

The display and story of Neanderthals is quite interesting. They turned out to be very clever, by the way.
The cave is also a home to unusual stalactites and stalagmites, very different in shape, size and origin. They even have a stalactite/stalagmite building machine on display.

Although, not too long (30-45 min), make this tour a must if you are in the area. This was one of the most pleasant surprises of our trip here.

Small cave with pretty excursion into the human and geology past, as well. Cave's visit is not long, so you will not feel unconfortable, because of cold. Local museum which is situated on the other side of town offers, let's say, standardized set of archaeological finds and other historical artifacts. Conclusively, if you are nearby, it won't be mistake to visit, but there is not much to see for separate whole day trip, of course, if you don't want to walk around through the hill, visit "watchtower" on hilltop etc.

Interesting cave, but it is not as marvellous as it is advertised by the nice and helpful local guide. Anyway, it worth a visit.

Nice place, for many years archeologists and paleontologists from Belgrade University worked on this founding place. However, there is no information in English at all, the artifacts found are in the National Museum in Arandjelovac and cannot be seen in the cave (although there are several figures of people that lived there 35-50000 years ago and cave lion and bear).

Combined with beautiful environment and other sightseeing in the region (Arandjelovac, Bukovička Banja, Oplenac) it is worth a visit.

What a wonderful place, great story to tell. A small cave, nicely fitted with different exhibits of prehistoric animals and Neandertal people. A lady working there told us a great story about this cave in a really authentic way, with the vocabulary so easy for children to understand and still delivering valuable data and putting the data in right context. I recommend Risovaca Cave.

Visiting this place was such a positive surprise for me. First of all cave is in a great shape and well prepared for visitors. Tour guide did a tour only for us and he was great. Telling very good stories and entertaining kids.
It's nice to see that we have such a place in Serbia and it's a shame it's not much more recognized and promoted.
