"An expedition of Czech speleologists and geologists has uncovered a unique giant underground "cathedral" and passages in the Shaanxi province in southern China these days, which is one of their greatest finds in modern history, daily Pravo reported on Monday.

"The biggest success of the expedition is the find of the more than six-kilometre long Tianxingyan Cave. After getting over the difficult sections, they succeeded in finding a three-kilometre long river passage and a giant underground hall that is 150-metre-long and 200-metre-wide," expedition participant Zdenek Motycka, chairman of the Czech Speleological Society (CSS), told Pravo."

Or the life to come, what I hear is the murmur
Of underground streams, what I see is a limestone landscape."
