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.

I wasn't sure what to expect as I didn't read up on the caves beforehand. We were all just happy to know that the caves will be cooling and would be a good hiatus from the summer heat. We took a train (which kinda resemble a roller coaster ride) deep into the caves and boy it was cold! I was... More

Just amazing! We have never seen anything like this before. You will definitely need your camera and a warm jacket and hat. I would also say that as a mother and grandmother this is not appropriate for small children for safety issues. As you get off the tram and walk around the cave it is not child proof.

Extraordinary, enormous and varied. Guides are pretty good but formulaic. Well worth going, suitable and good for all ages.

Amazing cave worthwhile visiting. Large chambers with unique formations. The train ride into the cave is a thrill by itself

One cannot visit Slovenia without visiting Postonja Cave. It is really a fascinating and spectacular cave with its web of tunnels, passages, galleries and halls. We visited the cave on the 30th July. We had to wait for 2 hours in the queue as there were a lot of visitors. But it was worth waiting. The train ride was really... More

The biggest stalactite cave I know, Incoming and outgoing on trains. Not very cold, but it's worth taking a thin coat.(You can buy it for 15 euros) All tours are with a guide and in several languages.And can receive audio guide. The beauty can not be describe! Entrance pass over the river with watermill active.

Fantastic trip. Some amazing sights photos can't capture it's true beauty it has to be seen to really appreciate it. The only down side to the trip I felt was that the group was to large and would be better as a smaller group .

Awesome experience Not scary Train ride was comfortable Watch your hat but safe... Some draft from speed of the train otherwise very comfortable. Light sweater might be nice for some. Quite a walk inside the cave. Not colorful but nevertheless dramatic. A MASSAVE cave Been in many large ones.. all put together ..no equal to this one.
