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.

You will feel at Gringots from Harry Potter!

I am not kidding, I think JK Rowling put part of this area history into the world of Harry Potter. I felt I was in the bank of Harry Potter. Also there are fantastic stories about... read more

I am not kidding, I think JK Rowling put part of this area history into the world of Harry Potter. I felt I was in the bank of Harry Potter. Also there are fantastic stories about dragons and well it is so worthy to go there. I would go again and again. Keep in mind that the weather down there... More

For couple of years now they have Living Nativity Scene every December in the caves. It's really great visiting during these days. It's great to visit the caves nay time, but this is a little bit special. Since it's getting more and more popular every year, you need to book tickets in advance. Walking through caves there is enactment of... More

We drove from Venice in about 3 hours. It was a very hot day but we were told the caves were very cool (about 12 degrees C) but it seemed warmer than that. The train ride into the caves was a lot of fun and when we arrived at our destination, the formations did not disappoint. The walk (and climb)... More

As you head up towards the entrance of the caves the excitement starts. A quick and fun little train ride takes you into the caves where it opens up into WOW ! We did this on a tour so had great information the whole way through the caves. Great experience and a must if in Slovenia !

From first entry into the caves to leaving everything about this visit was fab. As you wait for the little train there is a very entertaining video about the rules and regs in the cave. The train ride is exciting, it feels quite fast the ceilings are low. The train ride is about 30 mins and gives a good taste... More

Entrance fee is a bit expensive, but it was worth it. We took the basic tour. It starts with a train ride through the amazing scenery, and then we walked from one chamber to another. Our guide was informative, we learned some interesting facts about the cave. Walking was easy, the floor wasn't slippery. In the end, you are able... More

We wondered if this might have been a bit too touristy, but we had a great morning here. Thought we would hate the train, but loved it! Our guide was excellent and had lots of intersting information to share. There were other tours also available, including an adventure tour, but we were content (very happy) with the basic tour. The... More

What an experience. Kilometres of underground caves with magic shapes and colours. The guide was very interesting. It seems like another world.

We visited these caves after seeing the similar Skocjan caves 2 hours away. After seeing the price and with the difference between the caves seemingly only being that this one had a train which must be fun for families, we decided to visit the animal section only. We really enjoyed this section without the tour as we could see everything... More
