About caves and Team New Spirit:
Caves are a unique and special part of our natural surroundings. Due to their slow and gradual formation over many thousands of years, special shapes and passages of the underground void have developed, producing a deepening into the unknown, numerous sediments have been deposited, gorgeous calcific formations have been created, and they have been a shelter for many animals.
Caving is a recreational activity consisting of the exploration of unplanned cave systems at the amateur level. It is often practiced as outdoor activity, as a physical exercise similar to hiking on the mountain. Caving can also be a form of ecotourism or adventure tourism. It is a team sport, and its practice always requires a group of people who rely on each other and who can help each other in need.
In order to be able to visit a cave legally, an interested person has to get in touch with a cave tourism guide, who has the knowledge and skills necessary to lead a group of tourists in an untouched cave. The first cave tourism guides in our country were trained in 2018 and are in a limited number. Our team consists of 3 cave tourism guides and at the same time rescuers from an underground environment (speleologist rescuers), with a cave experience for over 20 years.
If you want to take part in such an adventure and visit a cave with an underground watercourse, at Smida Jazz Festival is your chance to make your dream come true!
