Pictures from The Cauldrons

The Cauldrons are at 5 minute walking distance from Lenšˇis. They are the bed of the upper part of Lenšˇis River, before it reaches the city. The floor is heavily eroded, forming small whirlpools that we can swim on; some are shallow enough to enter like in a bathtub. The dark color of the water makes it all look like we're in a Coca-Cola river. Despite that, the water has no smell and it's perfectly safe even for drinking (or so the locals say).

GPS tracks

No need. There's a lane just beside Lenšˇis Hotel that leads to the Cauldrons. Ask anyone and they'll tell you. You can't get lost even if you try.
