Underground experience

A while ago, I visited Warsaw Caves at the end of a cool afternoon, on a wet fall day, with a two-year-old and no flashlight. You might as well say I did not see them. Still, we were there long enough to assess what a great underground adventure it offers to young explorers. Some of the seven biggest caves marked along the trails are up to 100 metres long. They recommend exploring the caves with kids 7 years and older but I still think a parent can stay behind and help younger siblings just get in and out of a cave. The trail to the caves starts smoothly but is soon covered by large plates of rock (at times slippery) which offers a unique scene. Bright green touches of moss cover the stones, and straight tall trees have popped up wherever they could. Some actually managed to grow from the bottom of 2-metre-deep crevices! During the summer, visitors can swim in a calm river accessible from a beach where canoes and kayaks can be rented.
