Pseudo-karst cave is located in the valley of the Vazovecký brook about 3 km north of Turnov. It is part of the karst system and its known length is 225 m.

The cave originated on fissures, which were spread by dissolving sandy limestone. An underground flow with an average yield of almost 30 l /s rises from it, which is fed, among other things, from two known sinks, from Podhorčí and Roudný.
Ondříkovice sinking belongs to the natural monument, but water does not flow to Bartošova kiln. The natural monument bears the confusing name "Ondříkovice pseudo-karst system", which no longer corresponds to the current knowledge of the cave. We are talking about pseudo-karst only for insoluble rocks, such as quartz sandstones, which form rock towns of the Bohemian Paradise. The flow under the spring was used to drive a water wheel.
In the past there used to be a mill and later a glass cutter, which is now a recreational facility.
The name furnace is sometimes used in the Bohemian Paradise as a synonym for the word cave (Russian or Bulgarian pawn). Some of them resemble a bread oven.

Bartošova pec

Underground stream flows from the cave with yield 30 l/s which is supplied amongst other from two known lapses, from Podhorčí and from Roudné. The nature resort includes also Ondříkovické lapses. Water does not flow in Bartošova pec. The nature resort with confusing name Ondříkovický pseudo-krast system, which does not comply with the current knowledge of the cave. The pseudo-krast is possible only in case of non-soluble rocks, such as quartz sandstone forming the rock town of the Bohemian Paradise. The flow was used under the flow opening as a drive for water wheel. There used to be a mill, then the glass grindery, and it is a holiday resort today. The name pec (furnace) in the Bohemian Paradise, is sometimes a synonym for caves for its arched shape (Russian or Bulgarian - peščera).
