Stalactite - it is a formation hanging from cave's top, that composes of dropping water, permeating through carbonaceous solids, taking carbonates and leaves a slight calcite layer in the open air.   That is how layer after layer grow stalactites. Stalagmites compose analogously, but they develop on the bottom, growing to the top. The color of formation depends on additions, e.g. FE additions give the red color.

Visiting the caves even in summer, it is worth to take a pullover and trousers, because it is cold in them.

 

It is possible to visit Demanova ice cave, but impression will not be so huge.
