Overview

Postojna Cave is the best-known cave in the world. It is also the greatest tourist attraction in Slovenia and one of the world's largest karst monuments. A fantastic web of tunnels, passages, galleries and halls, the astonishing diversity of Karst features as well as easy access are certainly the main reasons for such popularity of the cave and a large number of visitors.

Huge. Massive. Pretty. First of all, the parking lot to the entrance is a little walk so remember to save enough time before your tour. They want you there 10 mins before your scheduled time, it is in the fine print that no one tells...More

Postojna caves are very big. It is an underground city that was patiently built by nature for tens thousands and even hundreds thousands of years. It is completely otherworldly and mesmerising and worth seeing. I recommend that you bring warm clothes (or you can rent...More

A surreal experience. You take the electric train into the cave but be prepared to walk up a long trail up hill(sometimes pretty steep). The caves were so beautiful and they seem to take great care of it’s preservation. Took so many pictures but none...More

You can see cave with children. Entrance of cave train wait for people and transfer passenger to middle of cave and then walking about 30 minuets and then come back with train. Passage for walking is safe.
