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.

if you happen to be in Slovenia, Postojna cave is place that you should visit.There is round trip train that will take to main cave stage. What is important to know is that you have to bring warm clothes as cave temperature is really low (around 12 degrees Celzius) and something to cover your ears as train is cabrio :).

This is one of the best cave systems I have been in, plus you get the extra bonus of going on a train ride through the tunnels to get to the main caves, which was good fun whatever age you are. There is about a mile of walking, most of it is on the flat with a few stairs, so... More

We took our friends' advice and stopped by this cave in our way from Croatia to Bled; and we'll never regret it! The Cave is huge and very impressive. Our whole family was in awe! There is a little train that takes you deep inside the cave, then groups of tourists with guides for about 6 different languages are taking... More

You board the cave train and descend into a subterranean world of stunning stalactites, stalagmites and columns. The train takes you deep down for many miles and then you hop out and commence your guided tour which involves a bit of slow climbing but it is not too difficult as it is graduated and no stairs. The guide talks about... More

Regardless of the time of day or time of year, a visit to the Postojna caves will be spectacular. Such an interesting walking tour inside the cave as they're such a magnificent piece of natural infrastructure to look at. The caves are also well lit and tour guides speak many languages. The caves are a pretty moderate (10-20 minutes) walk... More

An impressively huge cave system - starting with a long underground train ride before taking a guided walk for the best part of an hour. I'll leave it to others to describe the cave features - suffice it to say they are worth seeing.

We visited the caves on an organised trip and they are absolutely amazing. An open train takes you so far inside and then a guide walks you around for around 1 hour. It is quite chilly so take a jacket! The formations go on for 21 km but obviously you cannot see it all so although it is a long... More

The caves are nothing spectacular although they are still interesting but again, nothing breathtaking. The trip inside is good insight on the caves but everything is repetitive. I still recommend a visit if you're not too far away.

We were headed to Venice from Bled and decided to stop and visit the Postojna Caves. It was very convenient to get there by car; the parking lot is a relatively short walk (about 5-10 minutes) from the ticketing booths. Note that there is a fee for parking. The caves were beautiful, and as others mention, you start with a... More
