And here we are at the entrance of the glacier, which welcomes us with a shade of blue that I have not seen anywhere else. A deep blue that is not found in the sea or the sky. A cold breeze and ice tunnels reveal themselves in its depth.
The tunnels lead to the incredible ice sculptures with ambient lighting - polar bear, tables, throne, bar and chairs. In the glacier itself, the path is covered with a mat to prevent visitors from slipping.
You love history, wonder what nature looked like on these lands millions of years ago, are curious and like animals, then the Pliocene Park in the village of Dorkovo is the place for you! As soon as you step inside, you are transported back millennia. In the middle of the hall you will notice a huge mastodon with a height of almost four meters and tusks three and a half meters long. Hidden speakers play sounds that help you go back in time and feel the place. On the wall there is a panorama of the surrounding nature at the time of the mastodon with the typical animal and plant species. The overall feel of this place is very pleasant and despite its small area it will help you feel the place as it was, even if only for a short time. And the memory of the visit will definitely stay with you for a long time.See more
