If the history of a cave that dates back over 350 million years doesn't pique your interest, maybe its opulent display of stalactites and stalagmites will. Welcome to Jaskinia Raj, considered one of the most beautiful caves in the entirety of Poland. Once home to Neanderthals, 180 meters (590 ft) of these incredible subterranean chambers are today available for visitors to explore (in the company of a guide). Regulations on the number of people allowed within the cave at a time, combined with the educational exhibit at its main entrance, might make the experience somewhat less naturally authentic than other adventures. Still, with its abundance of ancient rock columns, it's a small price to pay for such an intriguing and beautiful sight.
