Sažetak
Cerovačke Pećine Caves are a cave system composed of 3 superimposed caves ; The Upper, Middle and Lower cave. Only the Upper and the Lower Cerovačka Pećina caves are open to the public, and electrified. The Middle cave is much smaller, and not suited for visits. Only the Upper caves was traditionally known to the local population, and was called the Kesića Pećina cave. However, this original name is in the course of time forgotten, and the cave is usually referred to as The Upper Cerovačke Cave (which means The Upper cave of Cerovac, the closest settlement). The Lower Cerovačka Pećina cave was discovered on 30th October 1913 during the construction works on the Gračac-Knin railroad by engineer Nikola Turkalj. Turkalj was not only the discoverer of the cave, but also its first explorer, and he even undertook first paleontological ecavations, with the findings sent to the Natural History Museum in Zagreb. To his honour the cave is commonly referred to as the Turkalj’ s Cave, but this name is nowadays seldom used, and the new name the Lower Cerovačke Pećine Cave prevails. The caves were paleontologically explored, partly at the time of their discovery, and more toroughly 1953-1971, when majority of fossil remains of the cave fauna were recovered. The caves are protected as a geological monument since 1961.
