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. « less

I hate dark and wet places. But this is quite an experience and I enjoyed it much. There are quite a lot of walking inside. Although they have treated the floor so that it is non slippery, there are some steep steps and stairs on the way. I therefore do not recommend this place for the elderly or people who... More

If you visit Slovenia, do not miss this. Have visited caves all over Europe and this is the best. Hard to take it all in. Travel on a little train for part of the journey and then on foot with an excellent guide. You will see stalactites, stalagmites, rock formations, bottomless pools, cathedral like caverns, sorry I cannot do it... More

On May 23 2104 our tour group visited the cave. It's the most breathtaking cave I've seen. The train ride was awesome. The walk in the cave was over to soon. The tour guide did a wonderfull presentation in English. I would definitely visit the Postojna cave and our county again. Lisa of South Africa

Despite the fact that outside there could be 30*C, inside all year around its 10*C. So take warm clothes with you, windbreakers if possible, as there is moist. Cave is quite big, 2km you will need to go by train inside, and more to walk after. Zoo inside wasn't interesting. Not worth of that money, you can skip it easily.... More

I have visited several good sized caves in the United States, including Kentucky's magnificent Mammoth Cave. Postojna Caves in Slovenia was the most AWESOME by far. From the people mover ride at the entrance to Postojna to the walking portion of the tour ten to fifteen minutes later, the size of this cave will overwhelm you. Mammoth Cave may have... More

I didn't know what to expect from the caves in person and it turned out to be one of the most amazing things nature has created I've seen. I don't know how many times I said "oh wow". This was an easy drive from the Istria area of Croatia en route to Ljubljana. And very much on the way. If... More

This cave is absolutely stunning! There are a few downsides… The group was rather large, which caused for quite a bit of disruption. They repeated on numerous amounts of times for no flash photography, but it seemed as though half of the group didn’t bother to adhere to this simple request. Be thoughtful of the creatures of the cave! If... More

This is top attraction and well worth a visit, but whilst the cave has a special train that takes you inside the amount of walking required within the cave and the undulating terrain means you need a reasonable level of mobility. Which wasn't mentioned beforehand. The train ride takes about 10 minutes and gets so close to the cave walls... More

The cave has a special train that takes you inside. The train was very cute and the ride takes about 10 minutes. Wear thick clothes as the temperature inside the cave is a constant 8 to 10 degree celsius. The cave is very well-facilitated to accommodate the large amount of visitors daily. The paths are non-slip, with hand rails to... More
