Abstract (in english)
   The magnetostratigraphy of cave sediments brought surprisingly new data on age of the last cave filling, changing local theories for dating of speleogenetical processes: (a) Classical Karst (SLO: obtained magnetostratigraphic data older than Brunhes/Matuyama boundary clearly show the age of speleogenesis cannot be connectedf with Pleistocene climatic cycles. Fills of fossillised caves are clearly older than about 1.8 Ma. The speleogenesis was probably connected with the speleogenetical phase related to the Messinian crisis and the fossilization with post-Messinian sea-level rise in the Mediterranean region, and (b) speleogenesis of well-known Demänovská Cave System (Low Tatra Mts., SK) was much older than supposed earlier.
