Vranjača has been known to the local population since ancient times, but the second part of the cave was discovered only in 1903. Stipe Punda, the owner of the land where the cave is located, discovered this hidden world. The cave was opened to the public in 1929.

The inside of the cave hides a magical world of stalactites and stalagmites, columns, and arcades. The cave consists of two parts. The entrance, without decorations, has been known to the local population since ancient times, while the second part was discovered in 1903. A small natural passage leads from the entrance chamber to a chamber composed of 9 smaller parts full of cave decorations of all shapes, sizes, and colors.

The specialty of the cave is that its interior maintains a constant temperature of around 15°C throughout the year. Vranjača is located at 452 meters above sea level, it is 107 meters deep and 365 meters long.
