The cave is located on a hill above the town and boasts magnificent views of the picturesque town of Štramberk
, nicknamed the 'Moravian Bethlehem'. It is the place of the oldest documented human settlements on our land. In 1880, a part of the lower jaw of a Neanderthal child was found there. The discovery is all the more valuable because it is a quarter of a century older than similar findings in Germany.
In the 'Arrow cave', remains of prehistoric animals such as a cave bear and even a prehistoric lion were found. Šipka (Arrow) cave is a valuable prehistoric archaeological site in the Czech Republic. The local discoveries apparently inspired Zdeněk Burian, a native of nearby Kopřivnice, known for his drawings and paintings, who created a range of reconstruction of scenes from prehistoric times. Burian said that he used to play in the cave as a child.
The cave is open and consists of a large area eroded by water in the internal part of the hill.
