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.

Great caves, well worth a trip

The train takes you down into the cave where you walk with your guide for approx 1 km. Well done, quite an easy walk.

The caves themselves is a wow, very impressive, very big, with many cave formations. The entire visit process is very 'industrialised' and guiding (I had) really low quality. (The staff should visit nearby Skocjan Caves to learn from those guides on how to do it professionally.) The crowds, and the way they are herding people through it, ruins the experience... More

I've never really been excited about caves buy included this on the itinerary as it was continually mentioned as one of the highlights of Slovenia Firstly we missed the entrance ( we were driving ) and ended up at Predjama Castle at 9am which actually worked out really well as we could buy a combined ticket ( good deal )...

If you only have time for one thing ( it does take about 2 hours) this must be it. A combination of easy access, good walkways, good lighting and brilliant cave structures, makes this one of the best cave packages, ive ever been to.

The caves are beautiful, but if you've seen one, you've seen them all.. Inside is not as cold as we were warned. A jacket would be enough. Entrance is expensive (28€ for adult, 17€ child), includes the cave and something they call a "zoo" of the insects found within the caves, which shows absolutely nothing... But you must buy a...

This private tour was amazing. We felt very privileged as it was the two of us with our guide and avoiding the crowded tour. Our guide Mr. Adam couldn't be more interesting and nice/fun. He knows everything about the caves and also we had a great time chatting about Slovenia's history. We had a great time and we totally recommend... More

We came with two teenage kids on Sunday morning. The cave opens at 9am so we came early and were at the ticket counter at 9:15. The next available trip was at 10:30 so we had to wait over an hour. During the busy summer vacation, I recommend buying the tickets online to skip the lines and reserve your slot.

A must-see for a vusut in Slovenia. The cave is overwhelming and the ride inthe train makes the visit suitable for all ages. Prices are, however, a bit exaggerated.
