Caving federation Go to top

SSOS (Federation of Speleological Organizations of Serbia) has been re-established in 2005. Caving clubs SOB, D.I. "Manda" and ASAK are members of SSOS.

Cave rescue Go to top

In Serbia we do not have organized cave rescue, compareable to those in countries where caving is well developped. Currently, with the aid from foreign cave rescue organizations, cavers from clubs members of SSOS are creating the core of our future cave rescue. Besides that, the Mountaineering Association of Serbia has a Mountain Rescue Squad external link, with the equipement and some training for cave rescue.

Cave diving Go to top

Most caving clubs in Serbia have at least one cave diver. The most experienced cave diver in Serbia is the caver Aleksandar Milosavljević "Ceca" (previously in SOB, now in Aquamont external link), while currently the cave diving depth record (Krupajsko vrelo, -123m) is held by divers from diving club Triton-AST external link.
