The cave is the richest finding place of skeletons of cave animals (beers, lions, hyenas). Eliscina jeskyne has a very wide stalactite decor and a grandiose acoustics, therefore concerts of chamber-music take place here. During the reconstruction in 1997 the Stupnovita propast (gorge) has been bridged over so visitors can enjoy the uncommon sight.
