Krizna Jama (Cave of Krizna or The Cross cave), located in Slovenia, is one of the most remarkable caves of the world. The cave is particularly renowned for its chain of twenty two subterranean lakes of emerald green water. The cave was first documented in 1832 but the most beautiful part of the cave which includes lakes and stream passages was first explored by Slovene cavers in 1926. At Kalvarija (the most famous symbol of Krizna Jama) the cave splits into two branches - Blata Rov to the north and Pisani Rov to the north-east. The passage through the Blata Rov is harder so most explorers choose to continue along Pisani Rov which requires the use of small boats. Krizna jama continues into Nova Krizna jama. ...more on Wikipedia about "Krizna jama"
