The cave abounds in cave formations throughout its length. It boasts a wonderful underground world made of corridors and large halls, on average 15 to 40 meters high, showing hundreds of morphological and hydrological forms of different shape, size, and color, cave jewelry – stalactites, helictites, wavy draperies, cave corals, and crystal flowers, which can be found only here in Serbia. Helictites found here represent a special kind of cave jewelry which, contrary to all laws of physics and gravity, extends in all directions, like electrified hair.In 1998, the Institute for the Protection of Natural Monuments proclaimed Cerjanska Cave a first category natural treasure. However, due to the lack of funds, Cerje Cave is still not available for visitors.
