Cave Strašna peć

Visit to the Cave Strašna peć (Frightful furnace), located near the village of Savar, is another fun and interesting tour to embark on the island. The cave is 10 meters wide and 7 meters tall. A legend says that a race of Adriatic fairies, similar to vampires, decided to divide the island into two parts at its narrowest point, for reasons still unknown. They began to dig a hole to divide the island in half but stopped when dawn came and retreated to the bottom, as they would suffer if exposed to sunlight. The legend has it that they are still there and afraid to leave their hideout.

When you visit the cave, you will feel as if you have come to another planet, many bats live here, in fact, it is the largest bat colony in this part of Europe.
