Modric Cave (Modric Spilja), Zadar County

#4 of 10 in Nature in Zadar County
Don a helmet, headlight, coveralls, and a brave face as you prepare to go underground at Modric Cave (Modric Spilja). This natural cave was first excavated in 1985, but human bones, remnants of Neolithic pottery, and the remains of Holocene fauna (including a cave bear found within the cave) are proof that the site had been used for many years before the recent discovery. You can join a guide to tour the cave's depths, where you'll crawl over and under speleothems. The cave ranges between 2 m (7 ft) and 8 m (26 ft) in both height and width through most passages, reaching a height of 29 m (95 ft) at one point.

  • An absolutely wonderful experience that you can totally recommend. Marijam, our guide, has contributed greatly to ensuring that this experience is not forgotten so quickly. German and English leadership. Easy to understand. For about 25 euros per person worth every penny! About 2 hours of cave tour. Unfortunately, people beyond 2 meters or 100kg cannot participate, as some of the crevices that have to be overcome are very narrow. Solid footwear necessary! (Location on Tripadvisor is incorrect, prefer to check Google Maps) Contacting is complicated via email or phone. Happy to return!

  • Absolute highlight! I visited the cave with my 6-year-old son and we were overwhelmed by the great experience! Thanks to our guide Marijan we had wonderful hours in the cave, especially the moment of absolute silence at the end of the cave was impressive. I had to overcome myself a few times to climb through the narrow crevices, but with Marijan that was no problem. Thank you for this lasting memory! My son now wants to become a cavers
