Overview
More
The Pivka Cave and the Black Cave are the final two caves along the subterranean Pivka River before the river finally disappears and resurfaces in the Planina Cave. The Pivka Cave entrance is located 5 km from the Postojna Cave. The 65-metre deep entrance can be reached by walking 317 steps. Electric illumination is provided along the tourist path. The path takes visitors along the Pivka River towards the Black Cave, after which they get back to the surface and return through a forest. The tour takes an hour and a half, no special equipment is needed.

I really recommend this experience: it is a nice opportunity to see how wonderful is the nature. The visit costs around 25€, and it includes the entrance, the guide, and the train that drives you around 10 minutes till the deepness of the cave. There,...More

The visit is high-lighted with a train ride, a knowledgeable tour guide and a display of the 'human fish'. Worth a visit.

The lake and the waterfall is entirely under ground. It is quite large and well worth taking the walk inside the Postojna caves.
