Stopica cave is located on the right side of the gorge Pristavica, in close proximity to the village Rožanstvo, a 2,000-meter long vault with as many as 50 meters in height. The cave decorations in it are of unique beauty, and a real sight for our sore eyes is the tufa “where” alcoves lined with stone walls where water accumulates, which is poured out in the form of unique cascade. At the entrance to the cave is a small river waterfall abyss that collapses upon Stopića cave and vanishes into its gaping depths.
