Nature is full of mysterious places that seem to come straight out of horror movies or real fairy tales. Yet these places are real and reflect the magic of our planet. We make you discover these 15 spectacular caves.
These majestic caves are formed when the water seeps through the cracks in the limestone rock. And how are these cracks formed? These cracks are formed when these limestone rocks dissolve in the water. Slowly, over the course of millions of years the seeping water deposits limestone and forms these spectacular caves.
