Explorers Discover World’s Deepest Known Underwater Cave in Czech Republic

A team of explorers say they have discovered the world’s deepest underwater cave, 404 metres down, near the eastern Czech town of Hranice.

Polish explorer Krzysztof Starnawski told The Associated Press Friday he felt like a “Columbus of the 21st century” to have made the discovery.

Starnawski, 48, found the cave Tuesday in the flooded limestone Hranice Abyss, which he has explored since 1998. He scuba dived to a narrow slot at 200 metres’ depth and let through a remotely-operated underwater robot, or ROV, that went to the depth of 404 metres.
