Jama - Grotta Baredine, Porec

4.6
#2 of 60 in Parks in Istria
Take a guided tour of Jama - Grotta Baredine, an underground cave filled with sculptures, lakes, and odd little creatures called "human fish," found only in this part of the world. Due to millennia of complete darkness and seclusion, this cave has developed a world of its own--the temperature inside is constantly around 14 C (57 F), the walls are moist, and the ornaments otherworldly. The "human fish" are actually aquatic salamanders that are white to pinkish in color and blind. Walk the 300 m (1,000 ft) long pathway, visit five chambers, and hear facts about the cave.

  • We visited here in August as part of a family holiday. The caves, guides and facilities were excellent. It is physically demanding and not for the faint hearted or those with claustrophobia. My...  more »
  • My wife and I visited while on holiday in Istria on an overcast day. The guided tour was very informative and the guide spoke English, German & Italian. The visit was well worth the money.  more »

  • A cave worth visiting! The cave itself was nice, quite a bit of different things to see. I would say the most interesting of the cave was seeing 2 little cave creatures swimming in a small pool, deep inside the caves. They do walk around freely, but from my understanding, they do move them to a place where visitors can see them if they wander too far off. Our guide was doing the tour in 2 languages: Italian and English. At first this seemed like it was going to be a bit annoying, but it ended up working out perfectly. The smaller group of Italian people went in front, allowing the guide to explain things in Italian first. This gave the rest of the group plenty of time to calmly head down the stairs as well and gather around. The guide spoke English good, allowing us to understand everything she was explaining. There is enough parking space, a nice place to sit down in the shadow on some benches with tables where you can eat / drink some of the things you brought, as well as a small cafe where you can order a drink or a sandwich. Felt like the area above and below ground was well maintained and held clean. Overall a very pleasant and positive experience 100% worth the price.
  • Beautiful caves, lots to see, the tour guide was super. Had to wait an hour for the tour in English but there was a large exhibition area to visit so the hour flew by. Also a cafe and loads of seating. Definitely not suitable for elderly or disabled, 270 steps down, then back. Some narrow steps and low roofs but good strong handrails all the way.
