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.

Very beautiful caves. Feels quite rushed as you join a guided tour and cannot wander at your own pace. Quite expensive.

This is a major tourist attraction for Slovenia. There is a hotel and restaurant on site and you enter the cave by train. The cave system is very large and interesting. There will be up and down hill walking. Worth a visit.

We visited these caves on one of our optional excursions included in our trip to Portoroz, Slovenia with Parrys International, a superb coach tour operator from Cheslyn Hay in the West Midlands, England.. The countryside on the journey there was superb and we had lovely weather. The place is very busy with many tourists of all nationalities and is very... More

These caves are incredible as is the engineering allowing you to see them. The train ride inside really makes touring these caves so much easier and the 45 minute walking section with a guide is just awesome. It's 10 degrees inside so take a jacket to keep warm. If you are in Slovenia then a visit here is a 'must'

A fairytale underground natural set of caves. One 'room' is more magnificent than the previous one. Various languages used to describe the sights.

Well set up caving excursion with trams that propel you to the underground labyrinth. Easy to find off the highway. Also has the castle in the cave nearby.

The natural sights were spectacular! Quite a disappointing tour -- we left not knowing much more than when we arrived. The guide was unenthusiastic and not informative. For 20€+ a ticket it would have been nice to have a guide who was at least somewhat passionate about the job. If I were to do it again I might give the... More

The only way to see the caves is to go on a guided tour which includes a train ride into the caves and then a 45 minute or so guided walking tour. The caves are a spectacular natural feature and it is so impressive that such a huge feature exists and is so well intact. Warning: it is freezing in... More
