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.

Postojna caves are really one of the best European attractions. It is very exciting and full of adrenalin to drive with the train along the cave, observing amazing stalactites and at the end face the olm as a king of the cave.

From the outset it is important to understand that I am NOT a 'cave-officianado' but I do know a natural wonder when I see it... and these qualify as that. With just 20 percent of the caves explored (so far) it is well worth the trip inside to understand the grandeur of the system. Slovenia Explorer took us (when our... More

Very interesting to see how water shapes the underground through 10 kilometers. It was nice to drive by the train, however, if you're too tall you might experience some troubles since the tunnels are quite narrow. It was charming to see proteus at the end of the cave. We went in winter time and recomend to do so, because when... More

So this is a whole network of caves that you access with a small train (fun!) and then you walk. It felt like being in Harry Potter's Gringott's underworld, or some kind of prehistoric movie. Some rooms are just huge. The colors of the stones vary a lot. Loved it!

I visited these caves 52 years ago on a school trip. I was blown away by the size as the visit starts/ends with a train ride. There is quite a bit of walking but the floor surfaces/handrails are good - I took my walking boots. Incredible stalactites and stalagmites. This is the largest cave complex in Europe. Everywhere is extremely... More

Visitors to the cave are dazzled by a wealth of speleothems: calcite formations, stalactites and stalagmites abounding in a variety of shapes, colours and age. The constant temperatureinthe caves ranges from 8 to 10° C. Is a network of 20 kilometres of passages.

Stunning Natural Interior! Breath taking, because this drip-stone cave is one of the biggest in Europe (really huge chambers), and it has a mini train inside what you actually have to use, because the tour tour will be so long without it. Enormous stalactite and gigantic stalagmite all around you. Me and my fiance visited this cave in March 2015... More

This may be Slovenias biggest tourist attraction so be prepared for many tourists, but the experience was great. A small electric train takes you deep into the mountain where stalacties and stalactmites abound. It is narrow. At the end station you get out and walk for almost an hour through fantastic underground sceneries until you return to the train station... More

I was in Slovenia in May'15, driving from Vienna. I wanted to visit these caves because it is my first cave experience. They are most visited caves in world. Wonderful facilities and good guides. Must be a fun also with family. I will recommend it once at least.
