Baredine Cave is situated near Nova Vas, between Poreč, Višnjan and Tar. This cave is a treasury of stalagmites and stalactites, underground sculptures created by patient and centuries long activity of water. It is 132 meters deep, and open for visitors only up to about 60 meters.

In the bottom it has 16 meter-deep vertical wells with permanent underground water. The lateral part and the ceiling of the cave are covered by richly decorated calcite layers, stalactites, stalagmites and dripstone columns of various colors. Its miraculous dripstone forms are fascinating, particularly the “curtains” some ten meters tall, the very realistic statue of the Holy Virgin, the figure of shepherdess Milka, the leaning tower of Pisa, and Snowman the torchbearer that have become the cave symbol.

Here you will meet the Proteus anguinus or the “human fish”, the endemic species that lives only in these karst areas, as well as miniature transparent crabs and insects.
