The cave is a rare natural phenomenon and an example of river bifurcation in a mountainous environment. Through the valley (the Šariš side) and under the Branisko saddle flows a river which turns and meanders through the Šariš Highlands and springs on the Spiš side by the Devil’s Spring. Some of the water flows into the Devil’s Hole – a cave in the limestone under the mountain massif, and flows out as the Bystrík stream. Velká Svinka (formed by the same underground river) continues to the confluence with Malá Svinka – forming the river Svinka. According to the local legend, at the confluence used to stand a tavern owned by a greedy innkeeper. The innkeeper got into a fight with the devil because he wanted more than the devil could give him. The devil got angry, hoofed, and the tavern and the innkeeper fell through the ground, leaving a huge hole behind. Today, the submerged cave is located under a rock overhang. The entrance is small and to get to it, two steep and narrow riffles must be crossed. Behind them is an arched corridor with a descent, about 120 m long. Even though the cave is accessible, we do not recommend doing it for safety and environmental reasons. Be sure to visit the place if you happened to hike near the pass to Smrekovica.
