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

Beautiful caves, well set up and very organised. The staff are amazing, speak excellent English and couldn't be more helpful - they really understand "customer service". (UK tourist organisations could learn a lot from these guys!)

Well, whatever I write here will not even remotely describe what you will experience there. Totally another world, alien to our understanding of space and time. It is piece of art created by river Pivka on her way inside Mother Earth. Just seat on a small train and start the journey. 1,5 hours into the other dimension! Note: 1. Last... More

I've been in many caves around the world and this is right up there at the top! This place is AMAZING! Top-notch tourist facility. Extremely organized and efficient staff. Packed with tourists, which was a downer, but this is a major attraction on the tour bus circuit. If thousands of wandering tourists being led by flags bothers you, go to... More

Totally recommend a visit to these caves. The overall experience is thrilling and the historical aspect of the caves and their discovery is so interesting. The guides are very good and their tour is both informative and amusing. Totally worth the price.

Piece of art made by nature. Wonderful! My recommendation is next: to avoid rush buy tickets online, or if you do not want to buy tickets online, visit cave in early afternoon (between 2PM and 4PM) during the season when cave's opening hours are until 7 PM. Then is no endless row. Take thick jacket and warm shoes because of... More

Miles of caverns with the most amazing stalagmite and stalactites you will ever see. Nice ten minute train ride in and out and an hour walk with a guide. At 1 cm every hundred years, it is amazing to see rocks thousands of years in the making ! Packed with tourists - but these guys are people moving professionals. No... More

Once you get there the caves are impressively large however the train ride in was very unpleasant. The train goes through some very narrow passages and comes scarily close to some rocks jutting out, so much so that you have to lower your head as you pass through. I felt quite claustrophobic in some parts but luckily there were gaps... More

This is a sight not to be missed! This is the site of Slovenia's only underground train which takes you on a thrilling ride deep into the caves where you get off and walk through wonderful tunnels and chambers full of amazing formations. We did it as an excursion and having prev poked tickets was excellent as the queues were... More

When you come to Postojna cave you first see the enormous amount of people standing in lines to visit the place. The price are a bit high and the visit is worth it. you get to choose guided tours in several languages and each group contains more than 200 people . you start the tour in a train for 10... More
