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

Every one of my family member think it is amazing, and one of the best desination we have ever been to. Must visit! The cave is always about 10 degree Celsius all year round inside, so remember to bring your jacket with you if you go at a hot summer. Parking space is available, so remember to pay the fee... More

I have seen about 10 caves/caverns around the world, but this one tops every one (by far). It is a unique experience and should be added to the itinerary of anyone traveling to Central Europe. The entire facility is first-class, safe and educational. There is a hotel on the site as well as several types of restaurants. Should be listed... More

Great guide (guy from Argentina), splendid road by train, the most beautiful cave I´ve ever seen. Must-see if you are in Slovenia. Explanation (by guide) was very detail and interesting, with many other interesting information. All around the cave is excelent - food, shops, clean toilets, everything. Recommend also vivarium - to see and learn about fauna & flora of... More

The caves are well worth a visit; a fantastic experience if you are ever in Slovenia! The caves are beautiful and the tour is very interesting and restful. The train journey and tour takes just under 2 hours and it is best to wear some warm clothing. This is one of the most impressive natural experiences we have come across.... More

Such a beautiful place. I had my 2.5 year old girl in my backpack. No problem... Remember shirts and trousers.

While one has to be patient to pass all the shops and cafes lined around the path that leads to the entrance. To me that bit was unattractive and bit boring. But once you enter, you will see rent-a-coat spot (3.50 EUR) - if you do not have something warm to take on you, I highly recommend that you take... More

This is a fantastic experience and one you should never miss if you are ever in Slovenia! The caves are beautiful! The process from ticket buying to admission to the caves is efficient and swift as you line up at your designated time and are placed into different language groups. The caves are 21 kilometres of gorgeousness with great caverns,... More

We would have missed the Postojna Caves if our sat nav hadn't taken us off course. Our guide book said they were "vying with Bled as Slovenia's top tourist spot", so we were curious as to why we'd never heard if them and figured we'd better go see. We were able to get on the 1700 tour, which is supposed... More

The caves are simply spectacular and a a great wonder of mother nature. The tour is perfect for all the family. You take a train inside the cave for 2 kms, you walk the guided tour for another km and take the train back out for another 2 kms. Therefore in 90 minutes you can explore a good 5kms stretch... More

On so many hiking trails and tours I have been on, “exploring a cave” has always been on the itinerary. But more often than not, these so-called caves are nothing but a small nook in the wall. With constant dripping water and a musty smell to it, you can maybe squeeze 5 to 6 people into this “cave” and you... More
