Awesome underground canyon with a river running through it. The scale of this thing is amazing, thre's also a bridge over the river. It's like something out of Lord of the rings.

We visited the Postojna caves the day before and it was full of amazing structures and things to take pictures of. Truly stunning Skocjan has only a limited number of formations, compared to Postojna, and you can't take pictures. So how could it be better?...More
