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.

Wonderful underground world! You expect Gandolf hiding behind the stalagmites or stalactites. It's like walking in a ferry tail. 1 and a half hour of amazing experience .You take a ride with a small train for 2km and then you walk for a 1,5 km . At the end you see Proteus ( human fish) and then a ride back.... More

Huge and special cave, with endless different areas. Very recommended and worth the visit. Add a couple of euros for the electronic guide - they have them in many languages and it adds a lot to the experience, also for the kids. Even those that don't usually listen to the explanations will see other react to some of the places... More

I've been to plenty of caves around the world, but Postojna caves is more unique in the sense that you get the train ride deeper in the caves, which allows you to see more of the cave. The organisation of people into tour groups was very well organised and our tour guide spoke really good English, and you could tell... More

A 10 min walk from ticket box to the entry - downhill. Then a 2 hours in cave tour . The cave is impressive - two main segments - the silent and the noisy. The guides informs that there are approx 500 stairs during the tour - not such an easy walk especially for kids. From exit back to exit... More

The caves were very impressive, very well organized and fun taking the train into the caves, cold inside so don't forget to dress warmly. Our tour guide spoke English very well and was very informative. We booked on line which was convenient .

I just entered a cave with lots of rocks formation. It was very stunning and nice. It has its own unique shapes and sizes and most of all you could feel that you have returned from the past.

Don't miss this amazing attraction! One of the largest system of caves in Europe. There is an underground train for tourists to explore all the caves very comfortable and easy. You can ask for the English/German/French speaking assistant. There is bit cold so I can recommend to wear something appropriate, even in hot summer.

One of the most interesting spots in Slovenia, with amazing internal infrastructure of trains, lighting and exhibits. Well worth the time. Not suitable for children under 6.

The caves were remarkable. The organisation was great, even though the numbers they were dealing with were huge. The train through the caves was breath taking, plus there was a great walk through several of the caves. The stalactites and stalagmites.were numerous and varied.
