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.

The caves are breath taking in their vastness and beauty. The tour begins with a train journey taking you deep into the caves where you will see impressive formations in a variety of colours, shapes and sizes. Again, definitely worth a visit as you will probably not have experienced anything like this before.

This was soo cool. The train taking you into the tunnel was neat, but getting into the 5 miles stretch of the caves they have made viewable to the public, unbelievable! Breathtaking, and worth the drive. Beautiful country.

They can have a shorter tour with just the train ride and back. The souvenir shop at the end of the walk sells the same (fewer, if anything) stuff the one on the outside does. Mind you, it's extremely well laid out. There are no steps, and all is ramp. So you don't end up fatigued and panting at the... More

These caves are absolutely enormous and well worth a look. You don't even have to walk ! A little open train takes you from one area to the other. Worth a look

I recommend this if you are in Slovenia. We took a bus from Ljubljana, which takes less than an hour. The caves are about a 25 minute walk from the bus station. The admission cost was about 23 euros and, while plenty, it was worth it. As others say, there is a train into the caves, and then a walk,... More

This was a lovely experience, reached by bus just an hour from Ljubjana. The caves go on for miles and are awe inspiring, really worth taking the time out to visit and not an expensive trip. There are plenty of underground walkways opening up into large caverns, plus a great train ride into the tunnels. Admittedly it's quite 'touristy', with... More

Caves are huge! Train takes one 2 km into the cave and a guide walKS the rest of re way, providing history and insight. Lots of souvenirs, some very kitchy. Restaurants, both good and fast food type are on site.
