26th International Karstological School "Classical Karst": Show Caves and Science 18 June, 2018 - 22 June, 2018, Postojna, Slovenia Since 1993, the International Karstological School "Classical Karst" has been organised annually, covering many aspects of karst research. This year we will focus on research related to caves dedicated to tourism (show caves). The main aim is to present and discuss a wide range of speleological issues addressed by different scientific and technical disciplines that are deeply involved in sustainable show cave management (morphology, biology, meteorology, nature conservation...), the monitoring of natural conditions and tourist-related activities in show caves. We believe that there are many good and bad practices of adapting caves for tourism worldwide to discuss and to evaluate the role of science - at least at Classical Karst we have opportunity to share knowledge accumulated in nearly 200 years of using the Postojna Cave System for tourism.

It is possible indefinitely to list the countries residents which visited for these days the kingdom of eternal winter: Mexico, Peru, Australia, Spain, Lebanon, Brazil, China, USA, India, Denmark, Netherlands, Portugal, France … Foreign tourists and citizens of Russia, having visited the Kungur ice cave, often can't express that delight which covers them after the excursion on the fantastic underground world. What is surprising and unique in the Kungur Ice cave? In what it is one and only? First, in variety of forms of ice which are presented in the cave in more than 100 kinds. Secondly, an availability of long-term ices, which age is several hundreds of years, in spite of the fact that the cave is on an insignificant elevation mark. Thirdly, the cave length, it takes the fifth place on extent among caves of a plaster karst. Fourthly, there are several long and volume grottoes, that isn't characteristic of plaster caves. Fifthly, exotic contrast, during the summer period, from a heat in + 30 degrees outside to the subzero temperature of underground halls. This list of factors which characterize fantastic space can be listed infinitely, but as the popular Russian wisdom says "A picture is worth a thousand words". Welcome to the Kungur Ice cave!!!
