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

I came here as part of a day trip that also went to Predjama Castle. The caves are huge and spectacular, and the excellent guide (wish I'd caught her name) helped to make my visit even more enjoyable. The ride in the electric train was fun too. As well as taking a coat to keep warm down there, I'd also... More

The train takes you pretty far into the cave, then there is quite a bit of walking, and then the train takes you back out. The weakest part of the tour was our tour guide. She just wasn't that personable or interesting. But the caves were very impressive themselves. Remember, take a sweater. It is mostly cold because the train... More

Huge and spectacular caves I've ever seen. No.1 a must see in slovenia. It's heaven in summer!! Even the nearby castle provides a duo sight seeing with one ticket.

Wanted to visit here on 2 previous Slovenian trips but unable to manage. They are huge and spectacular. So much to see. The guides go to too fast so detach yourself and enjoy. The paths are illuminated but are still a challenge and not suitable for disabled nor infirm. The train rides in and out are exhilarating. Amazing place, visit.... More

It is very touristy but efficiently managed and the caves are incredible. There is about a mile of walking involved all on a good path but it is slippery and goes up and down and the guide goes pretty quickly so difficult for the less mobile (I don't know if there are special arrangements for disabled access).

The Postojna Caves were really incredible. It was hard to believe that they're real--my friend was right when she said it's like the fairy-tale worlds that Disney tries to create, only this is the 100% real deal! Walking around, you really felt like some elf (or a fairy--or maybe even a goblin) would come out and greet you. The walk... More

We visited Postojna caves with high expectations, and we were not dissappointed at all. The place is magical, like a dream or a science fiction scenery, and it's difficult to believe it really is nature made. Even if I'm kind of claustrophobic and I was ready for a fright, I would definately visit Postojna caves if I happen to go... More

Would put this up with the Grand Canyon as one of the most jaw dropping attractions I've visited. Just paid for the basic tour of the cave (€23) and worth every cent. Thought it was good we were split into our different language groups before we started the tour. Our guide, although reading from a script, was very good, she... More

This is an incredibly vast cave system with magnificent stalagmites and stalagtites, so vast you do the first part of the tour on a train. You can buy different combinations of tickets - the straightforward tour of the caves, an addition to see the so-called 'human fish' or proteus, or you can combine with a visit to Predjama castle, which...

It's expensive to get in. It's wet. It gets cold. But it's definitely awesome. And it's even better if you get a good guide with a great sense of humor. We took the Italian one (you get to choose from up to 4 languages) and it was great. I can compare the experience with the Jeita Grotto in Lebanon, and... More
