Really enjoyed it, very good value. Getting there is a little tricky, I'd recommend hiring a car for the day. Also I'm not sure if they accept card, so bring cash. It can be Euros, Kuna or the Bosnian Currency.
Definitely in top 5 places to visit in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The cave itself was amazing, guide speaks english really well, her speech was easy to understand and interesting. There is a concrete path running through the whole cave, so it is easy to walk there. It's a bit cold inside, but you are provided a jacked so it is OK. You are also provided a helmet (because of lower ceiling near entrance). We were told some interesting facts about human fish. Highly recommended to visit!
