Type: Caverns/ Caves, Nature & Parks
Owner description: 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.

We visited Postojna caves in the middle of winter and were both pretty amazed by the train system within the caves. Given that we have seen many limestone caves before, this way of traveling through the cave is our first. Only wished that the train could have gone slower at certain interesting parts of the cave. We had lunch at... More

I visited the caves on the 18th with a bus load of 40 odd people. Tickets were easily obtained. However upon entering the cave and joined our English speaking guide, we realized there were about 100+ people in tota withone guidel. This is not a problem in itself, but over 60 of the guests were with a translator, even though... More

It's only on rare occasions that I'm outspokingly negative on a tourist attraction, certainly when they have a significant reputation as the Postojna Caves have. Over the ages, the River Pivka has created it's underground way through the limestone, resulting in this very extensive grotto complex. We visited the caves on 6 January (Epifania), a working day in Slovenia but... More

Dear Guest, whilst we appreciate all valid feedback, we find your review full of untrue facts. The cave is accessible for disabled people on a wheelchair when accompanied. The whole tour can be done without problems as there is not a single step in the cave (Postojna Cave is the only cave in the world so easily accessible). The same... More

A friend and I went to see these caves on Sunday 11th of January. We got there about 3 hours early having read the Slovenian timetable wrong and there are just two tours a day at this time of year. We filled our time with a leisurely lunch and a look round the souvenir shops which were plesant. The souvenir... More

This was my second time visiting Postojna cave and again I was delighted. We came at 11 and the tour started at 12 so we took tickets for the vivarium too. It was nice to see some cave animals along with the cave salamander or human fish. Employees were very nice and helpful. The tour wasnt crowded so our tour... More

The cave is really beautiful. Views are stunning at some locations from where you don't wish to move. There are guides for English and Slovenian language inside the cave. In the beginning you will be taken to a point inside by toy train and after that there will be walking tour inside; return will be by toy train again. Colourful... More

Postonja cave is the most beautiful cave I ever seen. It is a must see if you travel in the area. During the tour the english guide provided us all the interesting informations that we had to know about the cave. Taking pictures is allowed but without flash.
