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.

Others have covered how awesome this place is but I'd just like to share a couple of things. We had expected to spend a couple of hours going around but felt we were rushed around by their guide in just over an hour. He could only address our group at microphone points which were not that frequent or evenly spaced.... More

The Postojna Caves are simply great. No matter the queue outside and the price not really friendly. Everything is worth it. From the journey with the train to the spectaculars halls, most of them really different one from the others. The guide was really full of informations and very funny (expecially when he turned out the light without informing the... More

This will be an unforgettable experience! It's absolutely magical!!!! If you are close by it's worth every extra minute to go there. I was in the caves as a child and had very vivid memories. Seeing the caves as an adult was even more amazing. You'll be talking about it with awe to everyone!

There is no denying these caves are amazing - I have never seen caves before, so can't really compare it to others, but it was incredible! There are a large amount of areas to see (around 5km) which is small in comparison to the complete size of the caves. The variety of colours and shapes of the stalagmites and stalactites... More

The caves are absolutely spectacular and huge. Entrance is by "train" taking you deep into the cave system. Once in the heart you proceed by walking into beautiful caverns with stalactites, stalagmites, curtains, noodles, etc. all perfectly lit and showing the format matrons to their best advantage. Th walk is easy. Audio tape is a must and is available in... More

We had a road trip from Venice to Ljubljana and we stop to Postojna caves for a few hours stop. The caves were apocalyptic! The biggest caves in Europe that actually have a train to keep your tour more relaxing. Experienced guides very friendly and helpful. Defenetly worth it!

We were a large group of students. We stopped through Slovenia on our way to Croatia. So glad we took the time to go see this cave. It is phenomenal! From the train ride to the walk through some of the most incredible stalagmites and stalactites you'll ever see, to the large amphitheater at the end where you can practice... More

We had researched these caves and were very excited when the day arrived of our visit. We arrived early as the 10 o'clock tour commences and takes 2 hours to complete. We prepurchased tickets at the Postojana tourist bureau with a ten per cent discount. Buying tickets was very easy and it is easy to proceed to the tour. Tours... More

We visited the cave with a five- and four-year old, and a 9-month old baby. Buying tickets, getting a meal, and using the bathrooms was easy (there was even a baby change in the cafeteria bathroom). Getting in and out of the cave with a stroller was easy: we had a folding stroller, and we were able to fold it... More

Postojna caves are a very popular site to visit, we arrived and were a bit daunted by the sheer number of coaches and cars in the carpark, but the layout and the way the tours are organised is very clever and spaced out enough that you aren't in groups of hundreds. You start off in a small train that whizzes... More
