Type: Caverns/ Caves, Outdoors
Owner description: 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.

Initially we thought we'd only have time for 1 of the caves in Slovenia, and we were going to skip Postojna and go to Škocjan due to the reviews here and in Rick Steve's guide book, but we had time to do both and if you don't go to Postojna you're missing out. It wasn't too busy with tourists as... More

I visited these caves in Oct 1973 and then again recently in Oct 2014. The caves lived up to my great memories of them - the stalactite and stalagmite formations inside the cave are amazing, and the train ride inside is lots of fun. But this time I was pleased to find the steep footpaths paved - hooray!

Exlusive expirience that you have to visit if you are near Ljubljana. You can take a bus from Ljubljana to Postojna which is about 50 minutes driving. During the winter enter in Postojna Cave is 3 times per day: at 10, 12 and 15 o'clock. The temperature in the Cave is always 10 °C . And you will have a... More

I originally wanted to visit the nearby Skocjan Caves but due to limited time and limited number of tours offered a day we instead visited Postojna. Yes there is a small train cart that shuttles you deep inside the cave and the point being its bringing you to the best parts of the cave to start a tour. It's around... More

Worth visiting! Set aside at least a half a day to visit them. If you are planning going by yourself, take a bus, not a train, because you will walk less. Bus Station located about 1 Km away. Be sure to check the bus schedule and the operation hours of the caves. The guides are very kind and make the... More

The Caves are really interesting, the train ride goes most of the distance and total time is 1 hr 30mins. Buses go from Ljubijana and are better than the train so the bus station is only 5 minutes from the caves. The caves are quite big, both 'tall/grand' rooms and also quite long, obviously as there is a train going... More

An amazing place! Ecellent walkthrough with a small train and walking. The cave was too narrow at some parts and huge at the end with a waterfall in it. The guide was very friendly and you could ask him whatever you wanted. Unfortunately no Greek tour guides. The only thing that make me unhappy with this place was the ticket... More

A 3 km electric train ride takes you into the centre of the cave. Inside temperature is constant at 18 degrees centigrade. Another 2 km of walking admiring the fantastic limestone structures. Must be the world's longest caves. Pay heed to dripping water and wear socks. Had to 'unfreeze' my feet!

I have not been to any other cave before, so was really impressed by this one. It is huge and overwhelming. The infrastructure is really good with the train and the pathways which makes traversing the cave much easier. The guide was very nice and polite and gave us some interesting trivia about the cave and caves in general. The... More
