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 have seen outstanding caves across China, Europe, the USA, New Zealand and Africa and these in Slovenia are up there with the very best. A little train takes you deep into the mountain and then you walk. Not as colourfully-illuminated as the Reed Flute caves in Guilin, but very natural and accompanied and explained by an excellent tour guide.... More

Slovenia continues to impress with its incredible beauty and impressive tourist infrastructure. These caves are amazing. Jaw dropping. There's a train ride in that feels somewhat "Indiana Jones-ish" and it's s seriously cool way to start the tour. Once you hit the first caverns it's one of those things that you will have to see it to believe it. There's... More

As with other reviewers, we visited the caves and spend a good morning here. All is well organised, good guides and clear descriptions of what we were looking at. The site is well presented and maintained. The ticket price was average value - not cheap however but at the top end of 'ok'.

The caves are very impressive and the place is well organised, but the tour was far too long for us. After 2 hours at 9 degrees centigrade in the dark we were dying to just get some sunlight. There should be a shorter tour available to those that need sunlight and warmth. The "underground zoo" was completely unnecessary for me.... More

If you miss this tour you have missed the best cave tour in the world. Very memorable, awing breathtaking. Start with a two km miniature train ride into an unbelievable display of over 3 million years of formations then disembark for a guided 1 km hike into even more stunning formations before boarding for your return. Great for all ages.

I said wow,wow,wow, duck duck.! We arrived in a group of 8 to join the next English trip around the caves. We initially though the price was a little high but after seeing it we thought it was worth every penny. You start in a group of about 60 to 100 on an open train with a small Diesel engine... More

I realise these in many ways wondrous caves are a national pride and they are certainly worth seeing - at least in limited amounts. Perhaps the caves are not so much a problems as how they are presented to visitors: you go by train into the cave and then follow a leader. You have an audio guide around your neck... More

I came here as part of a day trip that also went to Predjama Castle. The caves are huge and spectacular, and the excellent guide (wish I'd caught her name) helped to make my visit even more enjoyable. The ride in the electric train was fun too. As well as taking a coat to keep warm down there, I'd also... More

The train takes you pretty far into the cave, then there is quite a bit of walking, and then the train takes you back out. The weakest part of the tour was our tour guide. She just wasn't that personable or interesting. But the caves were very impressive themselves. Remember, take a sweater. It is mostly cold because the train... More
