Hranice Abyss, Czech Republic

Hranická propast, the Hranice Abyss, is located in near the town of Hranice na Moravě in Moravia.  The limestone abyss was the deepest in the country.  It's now been found to be the deepest underwater cave in the world.

A Czech-Polish expedition has recently found that the cave is deeper than previously believed.  New measurements put it at 404 metres (+1325 feet) deep.  

Hranice na Moravě isn't that far from Brno, so perhaps a field trip is in order.

  1. We have an partially explored hole here in the Mojave, Devil's Hole. It has the same feature. Goes down for a bit, then opens up into an expanse. It's been explored to 300'. I suspect that it goes far deeper. If the Indian legends are any indication, the system is huge.
