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

The nature of this place was great but very touristy (obviously) and over done in a Disney style way. Burger places, loads of souvenir shops and stalls and inside you are with a group and go to and from caves on a small train. Glad we went but have heard the other caves in slovenia are more natural still.

It was one of the best tours I had. Postojna cave is a huge complex that you visit using a small rail train and by foot. Its well organized and reasonably priced (around 28EUR per person). Couple of tips when being there: - Its crowded, its very crowded. Tourists are piling up in the morning, less we have noticed in... More

Let me just say, if you want to see a real fascinating network of caves, Postojna is a great choice. However, like so many beautiful sights, it is over-run with tourists. This wouldn't be a problem, except a majority of the visitors completely ignore the 2 rules of cave exploration: don't touch and please don't use a flash when taking... More

These are the best caves I've ever visited around the world. Everything about the experience is right. The tour doesn't include loads of boring information you don't need: it's to the point, clear, unrushed, the right length and interesting. The guide was a delight. The cafés and restaurants at the entrance are reasonable, attractive and spotlessly clean. Parking is only... More

The Postojna caves are the most popular tourist attraction in Slovenia and one the most beautiful caves in the world. They offer a breathtaking selection of stalactites, stalagmites and pillars. The guided tours are very beneficial and interesting since they highlight the most important facts and the most beautiful parts of the caves. I recommend that you wear slippers as... More

My husband and I bought tickets for the caves and the proteus fish and butterflies as it came as a combination deal costing about €28 each. At first I thought this was a bit expensive but once inside the caves I realised this was a good price. The caves are incredible! There is a nice footpath inside, I was in... More

The most interesting attraction, Slovenia has to show to the tourists. Really amazing, although i have seen two similar caves, at Ioannina and at Dyros both at Greece, Slovenians made very good work and they organized everything perfectly. Is a network of 20 kilometres of passages, galleries and chambers into which experienced guides have accompanied more than 35 million visitors... More

An amazing place to visit! We were really impressed by the cave and we liked the tour we were a part of. Don´t forget to bring some hoodies even during summer, you might get cold especially during the train ride.

When I last visited the cave, I was a young child. It was a marvelous place - like some kind of a magical world! However, the place now looks like Disneyland with the worst kind of shops and the lowest quality type of restaurants. Also, be prepared to pay 30 euros per person. You can only spend an hour inside... More

Dear visitor, we are very sorry to hear you have given Postojna Cave, which you described as a marvellous and magical place, a poor rating because of the restaurants, which have nothing in common with the world-famous tourist attraction. We are even more sorry about this as this is your only rating so far. When visiting major tourist attractions, visitors... More

After a visit to the Predjama castle, we visited the cave with a single ticket (approx 30€ per person). There is a car parking in front of the entrance and the ticket is 3.5€ per day. After a short trip by train, the visit starts inside the cave and it takes more than one hour to visit it. Guided tours... More
