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 booked an apartment in Croatia and drove all the way to Postojna to see the cave after hearing so much about it. The tickets are expensive (make sure you bring your valid ISIC card for discounts), but it worth every cent. The cave is impressive, professional staff and tour guides.

The caves are just amazingly beautiful and one should definitely not miss a visit! The guide was very friendly and professional The visit lasted for about more than one good hour and was certainly well worth! The walk is an easy relaxing one and the train ride is very pleasant although it get chilly in there (10°). Highly recommended!

The caves are fascinating but this attraction is hugely overpriced. On reflection we wished we had visited some of the smaller, less touristy, but equally spectacular caves in the region, such as Skocjan.

There is not so much to say about the Postojna Caves - they are as great as everybody says and definitely worth to visit. Remember warm clothes as it is cold inside, and often there is also water dripping on you. The guide we had for the tour was great - he tried to make the talk interesting, although I... More

This is truly the best cave tour I've ever had! I must say, despite us calling the information office asking them if we need to book our tour and them saying "no", I highly recommend booking it in advance. We visited the caves on 4th of April, hardly the high season. This was a cold, wet day, and we were... More

Even during the off-season this is pretty busy. I visited last as a child and was impressed, but returning with my kids now was even more amazing. The little train it perfect for children, and the walking inside the caves is fairly easy. The tours are very well organized, and our guide Branko was excellent and extremely friendly. Easy access...

Others have covered how awesome this place is but I'd just like to share a couple of things. We had expected to spend a couple of hours going around but felt we were rushed around by their guide in just over an hour. He could only address our group at microphone points which were not that frequent or evenly spaced.... More

The Postojna Caves are simply great. No matter the queue outside and the price not really friendly. Everything is worth it. From the journey with the train to the spectaculars halls, most of them really different one from the others. The guide was really full of informations and very funny (expecially when he turned out the light without informing the... More

This will be an unforgettable experience! It's absolutely magical!!!! If you are close by it's worth every extra minute to go there. I was in the caves as a child and had very vivid memories. Seeing the caves as an adult was even more amazing. You'll be talking about it with awe to everyone!

There is no denying these caves are amazing - I have never seen caves before, so can't really compare it to others, but it was incredible! There are a large amount of areas to see (around 5km) which is small in comparison to the complete size of the caves. The variety of colours and shapes of the stalagmites and stalactites... More
