Owner description: 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.

They call this the Queen of Caves - and I can see why! Really beautiful caves, so much to see. I could have spent hours and hours here. A good choice of trips too if you are serious about caves. But also an excellent, easy, fully accessible tour via train and walkways for those looking for a simple 'tourist' visit.... More

Postojna cave is just impressive. Really interesting thing to see, for people in every age. There are guides in different languages, so you can choose the one that is the best for you to understand. The only disadvantage, that after seeing Postojna - hardly any cave you'll ever see after it, will seem impressive and interesting :)

I have been to Postojnska jama twice. First in 1986 and now in 2014. Both times I truly enjoyed the beauty of this cave. Tourist facilities improved greatly since 1986 :-) and one can enjoy the cave also with small children.

I know we should visit even the most touristy place in every city, but for me Postojna Caves take "touristy" to a whole new level. Crowds and crowds walking like cattle to see what is supposed to be protected. Dumb tourists and tourist groups mad at eachother and their guides, souvenir shops and stalls, people, people and more people. Local... More

A great experience visiting these caves. Huge crowds of people but the staff handled them all with well-practised ease and kept everything, and everyone, moving without making you feel rushed or pressured. You start with a train ride into the middle of the caves (for taller people - watch your head!) then walk about 4 km through the galleries. No... More

Wow, these caves are huge! They are reminiscent of the salt mines in Poland, though of course natural rather than created by hand. And of course they are not made of salt. So maybe I’ll leave that analogy alone… Anyhow, the experience starts with you being herded through several turnstiles and photographers strangely taking photos of you as you stride... More

A fantastic place to visit, but don´t forget warm clothes. First a long transportation with a train into the montain, and after that a one hour walk through different caves with fantastic sceneries. A must visit attraction.

Our Slovenian friends recommended this cave over the Skocjan caves, so we took their advice. The signs for the parking are a little confusing so we missed the exit the first time around. The parking is across the street from the cave entrance. There was overflow parking farther down the road. You get a ticket at the parking entrance that... More

I had been to several caves in the United States and figured I had seen everything before. I was pleasantly surprised to see that this cave was different! We rode a train deep into the heart of the cave. I departed the train while my 85 year old mother rode right back out with our tour guide. We were advised... More
