Malinowska Cave

The Malinowska Cave is located along the red trail leading from the Salmopolska Pass to Malinowska Skała, under the peak of Malinów Mountain. It was described in 1849. Its depth is 22.7 meters, and the total length of the corridors is about 230 meters.

Folklore tells that already in the 15th century the cave was used by the Hussites as a hideout and a place of worship, and in the 16th and 17th centuries by Evangelicals persecuted in Silesia. At the beginning of the 18th century, the robber Ondraszek was supposed to hide in it, and according to folk tales the cave stretched underground The Malinowska Cave appeared in literature for the first time in 1850 in the description of Ludwik Zejszner's journey to the springs of the Vistula, and was later investigated by, among others, Bogumił Hoff, Wilhelm Friedberg, Władysław Milata and Kazimierz Kowalski. The cave is open to the public. From the top of Malinowo we go down a few hundred meters towards Malinowska Skała and turn right onto a clear path running almost horizontally, which we reach the opening. The entrance opening is at an altitude of 1080 meters above sea level. It is a vertical fissure with dimensions of 2.5 x 0.6 meters and a depth of 10 meters. The vertical sections of the crack are secured with ladders. The cave has two lines built of narrow crevices connected by corridors and fireplaces. The bottom of the corridors in line I is covered mainly with rubble and gravel, in places it is muddy, and in the second part it is covered with rock rubble and clay. The largest room is called the Gallery and is located in line I. It is 13.5 meters long, 1.4 meters wide and 9.5 meters high. A constant temperature of around +6 degrees Celsius is maintained in the cave. You can feel the air flow, and the daylight reaches the bottom of the entrance gap and to the initial part of further corridors. Descent to the cave is possible thanks to metal ladders and buckles, and it is not a problem even for children. During the tour, remember to bring appropriate rain clothes and headlamps.
