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

In this Postojna cave you have to travel with an open train, be aware to take comfortables shoes and a warm sweater or shawl with you, as it is windy on the "open train” and of course the temperature in the cave is around 10 C. The tour takes 1 1/2 hour and there are diff. language explanations quides or... More

Booked tickets on line and thought we might be alone since there was space available on all the tours. We got there early and found lots of visitors, many languages and no information at the beginning about what to do. Nothing to worry about. It was beautifully organized. Each visitor scans his/her ticket, enters through a turnstile and takes the... More

Decided to take my 4 year old and 3 year old child to see the Postojna Cave. I was somewhat hesitant, because I was unsure if the tour would be appropriate/keep them occupied for an hour. After taking them on the tour I realize how silly an idea that was. The children were amazed from beginning to end. The staff... More

Another day trip from lake bled, on arrival we were welcomed and our group was taken in. First a train ride for 10 minutes into the depth of the caves. Our guide led us on foot around the cave system, some beautifully sights,colours & smells. Felt a little rushed at times, but overall a experience to remember. PLEASE wear sensible... More

The Postojna Caves is definitely something you want to visit if you are in that area of Slovenia. The trip into the cave system starts off with about an 8 minute open car train ride deep into the cave system itself. You also take the train back out again at the end of the tour. The train ride itself is... More

I found the Postojna Caves a little bit like a tourist theme park, with a lot of tourists herded through the caves in a large group. Yes, it is very well organised, and the sights in the cave are certainly magnificent, so overall, it is worth visiting. It was somewhat spoiled by some of the visitors continuing to take photos...

We hired a rental car for 2 days so that we could easily get to Postojna and Lake Bled - it was inexpensive and worth it. We arrived at the caves with plenty of time to spare and had no trouble changing our tickets to an earlier time. Take your warm jackets with you, it is cold deep underground and... More

It wasn't cheap, but my kids loved the train, and I was amazed at how extensive and impressive this cave is. The human fish lives in the river, so you don't see it in the caves, but is displayed in an aquarium towards the end. English language tour guide did a good job explaining yet keeping us moving. Worth a... More

Caves might not sound interesting when discussed about but a trip inside one is the closest you can get to visiting another planet. You wont believe that the things you'll see are actually made of karst stone. They rather look like curtains, paraffin, broccoli, glass and spaghetti. Enough of this review to tease your imagination, but words can hardly describe... More
