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 were headed to Venice from Bled and decided to stop and visit the Postojna Caves. It was very convenient to get there by car; the parking lot is a relatively short walk (about 5-10 minutes) from the ticketing booths. Note that there is a fee for parking. The caves were beautiful, and as others mention, you start with a... More

Having visited several caves in different countries, I was almost not going to see Postojna- and what would I have missed! This is simply the largest and best developed cave system open to the public. The sheer size and variety of the undeground caves is mindblowing: you start with a 10 minute train ride to go down (beware: the temperature... More

Breathtaking caves, several meters high stalagmites, stalactites and columns. Two kilometers long ride with train throughout the caves.

Beautiful cave even though the it located a bit far away from Ljubljana. Inside the cave you need to walk about 30-40 mins i think and it was very slippery yet beautiful. at the end of the trip you will have a fast train inside the cave that will take you out from the cave.

A truly huge cave system that is almost impossible to grasp the intensity of. The tour starts with an open car train ride for about 15 minutes into the depths of the caves where you whisk past huge caverns, columns, and stalagmites and stalactites. You then walk around for about a mile or an hour or so, exploring the most... More

There aren't really words to describe how amazing this place is; you simply have to experience it for yourself. When you do, be prepared to be amazed - and be prepared for large numbers of tourists. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and earned a warm round of applause at the end of the tour. The only downside to... More

The cave tour is quite awe inspiring. It's not just a little small cave. You have to take a train ride into the cave before you can walk around. Bring a sweater!

I can write many lines on how impressive this cave is. But I think you can only experience this. If you have the opportunity to visit the cave, take the opportunity. Some practical information if you want to go here from the coast or Italy. I visited the cave during my stay on the Istrian coast. There are a couple... More

I expect Slovenia has more caves for its size than any other country in the world. So go and find another one as this system is now completely ruined by mass tourism. Queues, trains and the cost can be very expensive especially for a larger group. Such a shame because it really is an amazing spectacle.

I really like the caves but it is a little bit overpriced. The train trip takes around 10-15 mins to really get into the cave. Inside the cave it is really cold (10 degrees Celsius). You must take your jacket and jeans. The whole tour will take around 1, 5 hour. The guide was a nice guy and made a... More
