Caving & hiking – Queen’s Cave
Departure by van/jeep to the Okjucina village, the most hidden village on the northwest side of the island of Vis. After 45 minutes hiking through the greenest part of the island we will arrive to the Queen’s Cave, karst cave filled with stalactites and stalagmites. Cave is located on the vertical cliff 70 m above the sea. The cave consists of five caverns and the passages that connect them, with a total length of 60 m. The name Queen’s cave is connected to the Illyrian Queen Teuta who ruled in the 3rd-2nd centuries BC. Archaeological excavation took place in the cave on two occasions, but it has never been excavated completely. The results show that the cave was temporarily inhabited during the late Stone Age (Neolithic), and much more frequently during the Bronze age, particularly in the early phases. The beauty of the cave is a precious geological and archaeological jewel of the island of Vis.
