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.

I went here on an excursion with a bunch of students. This place is surreal! I would totally recommend anyone visiting Slovenia to check this out! Totally worth it!

This is the number one tourist attraction in Slovenia and it is easy to see why - it is the most amazing place I have ever seen. 22 miles of cave system and so well organised. The natural caves are awesome and huge. The biggest stalagmites have taken 350,000 years to form! It is a fabulous experience and not to... More

postojna cave is very well prepared to entertain tourists. It's an easy visit even to elders. Outside the cave there is a large parking, restaurants, fast food, souvenir shops, toilets. They separate the groups by language and you board an open little train to reach the beginning of a walk through galeries that go down and down until you board... More

I visited Postojna Cavern back in the 1990s and was excited to bring my wife to see the spectacular formations in this cave. We arrived just to miss the 11am tour and bought a joint ticket with Prezdama Castle and for a 2pm tour of Postojna. The castle was excellent with a self guided walking tour. This was in stark...

we were lucky not being at high season and still so many tourists. this is a huge cave, riding in a mini train for 7 minutes inside the cave to start the tour. after 10 minutes you saw all the Karst features it starts to be boring. If you have to chose, go for the Škocjan Caves

While traveling through Slovenia without a plan or a guide book I found out about this place with an amazing cave which resembles a science fiction film. The guided tours inside the cave are well delivered in many languages and the little living dragon endogenous to this cave makes this trip worth it.

Postojna Caves are Slovenia's hidden treasure box - MUST see for visitors. We are a family travelling countries for six months - the Caves are one of our top highlights of our trip. The mini-train trip in and out of the train is loads of fun. BEAUTIFUL and MAGICAL are the words our 9 and 10 year olds used to... More
