Abstract (in english)
   Four classes of different thickness of cap be distinguished, each with its special superficial and underground karst forms: 1. salt outcrops, 2. thin cap rock (0,5-2 m), 3 cap rock of moderate thickness (5-30 m). The most important factors affected by cap rock thickness are as follows: the density of recharche points, the amounts of concentrated recharge which occur at each recharge point, the rate of lowering the ground surface of salt karst, the dissolution capacity of water and the size and amount of load trasported by underground flood-streams into cave systems. The thickness of cap rock in the recharche area of the cave and the type of recharche into the salt environment. Another important factor is the thickness of overburden above the cave, which negatively correlates with intensity of breakdown.
   Wide passages in some caves are developed as result of intensive deposition of bedload, which expel the stream into the side of the passage and are due to enhanced corrosion in the few decimetres high zone above the bottom of passage
