Ochozská jeskynĕ (Ochoz Cave) is named after nearby village Ochoz. This river cave is a former show cave, which is today closed for the public. But it is often mentioned in older tourist guides. But as it is a river cave, regular floods caused damages to the paths and required continual renovation of the cave. And finally the cave was given up and closed. Today there are only parts of the paths remaining and the light is detroyed. But the cave is opend twice a year on the open door day. Visitors should bring appropriate equippment, light is necessary, good shoes, old clothes and if possible a helmet, are much recommended.

This cave seems to have been the place of excavations which revealed Neanderthal remains.
