Demänovská Ice Cave, Slovakia

Demanovska Ice Cave is the second lagest cave of its kind in Slovakia, and is known since the Middle Ages. Though the first reference to it is from 1299, it was opened to the public only in the 1880's. The entrance is at the altitude of 840 m. It consists of four floors with a total length of 2.5 km. Its ice filling is about 400-500 years old. This cave is also known for the bones of cave beat found there. They were taken for remnants of drake in 18th century. It is the reason why it was also called the Dragon Cave.
