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.

This place does not need my review. It's world known and for a good reason. The kids particularly loved the train ride. So did I. We were there on a very very busy day as the weather was bad. Despite the mass tourism they have a great system, so one does not really need to wait not queue long. Even... More

Jaw dropping. This is well worth the entry price. The caves are spectacular and what's more you get to enjoy a cool train ride deep into the heart of the mountain. Take a jacket though - it gets very cold in there. You'll need to stay warm.

The cave is mind boggling. A huge place, very very impressive. The tour is convenient and efficient, though a bit too crowded.

This is a nice side trip. It's a very touristy attraction, but still the caves are indeed impressive! Still, if you can only see one cave in Slovenia (or the world for that matter) I'd see Skocjanske instead. Unless you have children, that is. In that case, the trains and less big stairs will make it a lot more enjoyable... More

Visited this cave while visiting Slovenia and Croatia. Stopped by this cave on our way down to Piran. I have to say it was a good experience and not to be missed. It could be an experience of a lifetime. The train ride in the cave alone is somewhat 2 to 3 kms.

Everybody should visit it at least once in a lifetime. It is really beautiful. What I liked is that no wires from the lights were visible. There were a lot of people but it was very well managed. I recommend to go there, you will see why it cost so much money.

Amazing caves. We had a day trip which included the castle and the caves and because of the traffic getting out of Bled, we had a rushed tour of the castle, but plenty of time at the caves. You take a small train journey into the caves, then have an hour's walk through the spectacular caverns. We had a very... More

These caves are the best I've seen. Massive, well presented and fascinating. The combined tickets with the castle are good value but I really wouldn't bother with the cave 'zoo' extension. You can see the cave 'dragon' as part of the cave tour anyway and it really, really isn't worth paying extra to see a couple of bugs. The tour... More

What a sight. These caves are one the largest in the world full of stalagmites and estalactites. You don't know where to look first. It is just so unbelievable. The area is very well organized with set hours so as not to cause a crowd and they take you in a good 8 minutes in a small train for 120... More
