“GOB SMACKING”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

Awesome cave, the sheer size is impressive by any standards, well worth the trip.
Quite long and the walk out is up a long steep hill, which can be tiring in the summer heat.

“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

I have visited Slovenia for few days and I needed to decide if I will visit the famous
Postojna cave and Predjama castle or not so much known Skocjan cave.


The cave tour takes 1,5 hours and costs 15€ (its possible to buy combine ticket and visit also
underground river...ticket is then for 20€). At the beginning of the tour you will go with the guide
approximately 10 minutes to the entrance of the cave...later on during 100m tunnel...you will
enter the cave finally. Its beautiful with many stalagmites & stalactites. The most interesting part
for me was the underground canyon of the Reka River. Its huge. Its deep. Amazing.

“Tour guide rushed us too much!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

Great caves. I felt like I was an extra on LOTR or the Hobbit. It's jut a shame the tour guide rushed us through and people kept touching the rock formations (despite being asked not to!)

BEWARE...can be a steep climb and a hard walk so wear good shoes. Temperatures in the caves are normally around 12'c

“Amazing caves”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

These limestone caves have some of the lagest caverns you will ever see. There is a massive gorge with a river running through the center of the cave, and you cross a bridge spanning to gorge. It's amazing.

“Nicer than Postojna cave”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013 via mobile

This cave is smaller, than Postojna cave, but definitely nicer. The most impressive part of the cave is a natural bridgereally. Must see.
