If you are in Slovenia this is an activity you should put aside a day for. Spectacular, scary, exhilarting and educational. I would also thoroughly recommend the longer excursion too (5km, 3 hours) as the extended part is worth the extra hike. Although the main cave is definitely the most amazing - and terrifying - section. Walking high up above... More

you can still see, how the river Soca creates this very big cave. Close to it there is a perfect place to overnight: Pr'Vncki Accommodation, Matavun 10.

When you mention caves and Slovenia, people think of Postojna Caves straightaway. But believe you me, these caves are more spectacular hands down - at least imho. Thankfully I visited Postojna first so while that was still a pleasant excursion (albeit more than 2x expensive), this was far more interesting and exciting. No camera policy is emphasised here. A pity... More

If anyone is wondering if this cave is worth visiting - IT IS!!! We visited Postojna cave before, but this was something very different and maybe even better. The canyon of the river and the area around it reminded me of the scenes from Lord of the Rings. :) Also - don´t forget about the educational trail that starts behind... More

I think this is one of the highest compliments I have heard from my teen son to the place that I’ve arranged the visit, he said: "I'm so excited, even more when I got a new computer, this lace is so awesome!" For real, we have visited before many kind of caves and in many countries (also in Postojna Jama)... More

These caves, especially the underground canyon, are really impressive! MUST SEE. I've seen some caves before, but this is something else. Because it's not only the usual stuff like stalactites and stalacmites. It's most and for all an enormous canyon! As for the tour: Unfortunately, we were not allowed to make pictures, which I found very disappointing. The official explanation... More

This is one of the most magnificent wonders we've ever seen. An incredible combination of an astounding natural attraction combined with miraculous engineering within. Bring hiking boots or tacky soled shoes and be prepared to walk hundreds of steps and a lot of ramps. A good tour guide will help to make your time spent there even more meaningful. Also... More

Go see the Raka "river" river flow though the largest underground cavern in Europe. Amazing to hike hundreds of feet above the river - while hiking underground. Much less touristy than some of the other caves. A two hour hike with 500 stairs. We "cheated" and took the elevator back to the parking lot, saving about 20 minutes and lots... More

We were in a road-trip and almost skip this caves because threre are not many pictures. We would have done a terrible mistake. For me, clearly better than the more touristic and famous Postojna Caves that I also visited. Impressive.

The undergorund canyon is incredible, it's amazing to walk above the underground river. The walk from the cave exit to the parking place is also spectacular.
