The natural beauty and wonder of the cave itself is absolutely incredible in every way -- size, beauty, drama -- but you must go through it in a huge group and no photography is allowed. I would understand no flash photography, but I don't understand no photography. There is enough light in plenty of places with today's digital cameras to... More

Out of Postojna and Skocjan, we decided to see the later as we heard they are less crowded. We chose a guided classical tour and it was great. You cannot take any photos inside as to respect the creatures living in the cave. It has a silent part with magnificent stalagmites and stalactites, and a noisy part where the underground... More

We visited the Skocjan Caves , Postojna Cave and Predama Caves during our visit to Slovenia and I loved the Skocjan Caves the most .They were not as crowded with tourists and I also enjoyed walking around in the beautiful nature reserve surrounding the Caves .There were many stairs to climb but we did not find it too difficult or...

Being on a cruise and having limited time in port, we had to choose between these caves and Postojna Caves. So glad we chose these. It was awesome! We have been to caves all over the U.S. (Mammoth Cave, Carlsbad Caverns, Luray Caverns, etc), and we agree this by far beats them all. The bridge over the cavern is spectacular.... More

As a person afraid of heights I'll be honest it was a bit of a struggle, especially over the bridge, but the cool air inside helped and it was so worth it, there's some huge stalagmites to see and the twists and turns of huge caves, it's incredible how huge they are. The guide was lovely as well. It was... More

We chose these caves as we thought they would be less touristy than the other ones at Postojna. I would still like to visit the others one day but we only had time for one on this trip. The entrance fee is reasonable & includes a guided tour. The tour takes you on around a 90 minute tour of part... More

There are many cave systems in the area; this one and the Postojna caves are probably the best known. We went to both; these were the first of the two we visited and were totally amazed. Having visited many cave systems in the past, we felt these were definitely amongst the best, and were amongst the most extensive we had... More

We came to cave expecting to see some drip-stones after visiting the Postojna caves. While the first part of the tour is about drip-stones, the second part of the tour is what got me and my girlfriend really excited. The guide took the group into the depths of the caves (at least as it was looked to us novices). We... More

At the beggining we thought that the cavew werw nothing special in comparison to other caves we had visited in Greece (Diros caves), but when we reached the huge place with the bridge and the river in the bottom we were amazed. This was a unique experience to be there . Highly recommended

After having visited the Postojna caves we decided to give the Skocjan caves also a try, and what a great adventure it was. I definitely prefer the Skocjan caves over Postojna. After waiting for our tour guides we walked for about ten minutes to the entrance of the caves, where the group was split up in smaller groups according to... More
