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

While one has to be patient to pass all the shops and cafes lined around the path that leads to the entrance. To me that bit was unattractive and bit boring. But once you enter, you will see rent-a-coat spot (3.50 EUR) - if you do not have something warm to take on you, I highly recommend that you take... More

This is a fantastic experience and one you should never miss if you are ever in Slovenia! The caves are beautiful! The process from ticket buying to admission to the caves is efficient and swift as you line up at your designated time and are placed into different language groups. The caves are 21 kilometres of gorgeousness with great caverns,... More

We would have missed the Postojna Caves if our sat nav hadn't taken us off course. Our guide book said they were "vying with Bled as Slovenia's top tourist spot", so we were curious as to why we'd never heard if them and figured we'd better go see. We were able to get on the 1700 tour, which is supposed... More

The caves are simply spectacular and a a great wonder of mother nature. The tour is perfect for all the family. You take a train inside the cave for 2 kms, you walk the guided tour for another km and take the train back out for another 2 kms. Therefore in 90 minutes you can explore a good 5kms stretch... More

On so many hiking trails and tours I have been on, “exploring a cave” has always been on the itinerary. But more often than not, these so-called caves are nothing but a small nook in the wall. With constant dripping water and a musty smell to it, you can maybe squeeze 5 to 6 people into this “cave” and you... More

I don't know that is true that Postojna Cave is the best-known cave in the world - but it is for sure one of the most amazing ones. It's a perfect trip for summer, winter, rainy or sunny days and it's suitable for the whole family! The caves system is amazing and the train ride makes it even more special!

We visited on July 8, 2014. The cave system was excellent- such mighty stalactites and stalagmites! We were initially at a loss whether to explore these caves or the Skojan caves, and then decided on these one- glad we did so. It’s very easy to go to these caves- just take a train from the main train station in Ljubljana.... More

Fantastic cave this was the last cave we visited and was one of the nicest and biggest caves we seen. A train takes you inside the cave so there isnt too much walking so great for children and it has access for disabled people too...overall great experience we all loved it
