We caught the last cave tour (#1) of the day, not many people, and free parking! This is a not-to-be-missed experience! We wanted to also go on the river tour (#2) but were too late for that. The cave will not disappoint. Paths thru the forests on the plateau are beautiful and very peaceful. Highly recommend this site.

There are 2 separate caves here. The first cave is the silent cave, which is your regular run of the mill variety cave. The second cave has the Reka River running thru it. Tours are run every hour and involve a little over 3k walking and about 90 minutes. €16. Our 10am tour was split in 2 groups of about... More

A well organised tour through a spectacular cave system. I've been to many caves around the world but this tour provided much more. It was well explained and the guide was very enthusiastic and helpful. There is a river running through the cave and the height of the cave is breathtaking. I would throughly recommend this, the tour takes approximately... More

I have seen Karst caves in China so I wasn't sure how this would compare. The first section on the tour is referred to as the "silent" cave. There are a lot of steps and upon entering you go through a low ceiling. My tour partner is very claustrophobic but he managed it quite well. After the entry, things open... More

We arrived early in the morning and joined the first tour group. It was a large group that joined the English speaking tour. It was too large for everyone to hear all of the comments from the guide. The infrastructure in the cave was very good. Good stairs, railings and non-slip concrete. There are a lot of stairs, so if... More

guide told us a lot about the caves and carst part of Slovenia, country in eastern Europe which turned out to be one of the most safest countries in the world as reported by our tour manager. And I also felt very safe spending my vacation there. Caves are a must see and organisation of the work seems to be... More

I loved it. It's an amazing sight to walk though. I've been to 2 other major caves in other countries this was the best. Well run as well. Helped that it had rained a lot the previous couple of days so the river running through the caves was just torrential! Adds to the drama. But note that there are A... More

There are two "sections" of the caves where it is possible to visit on a tour - tickets are required for each, and times are such that it would require morning and afternoon to do both. We got tickets for the main section, for 10am tour on weekend. We were somewhat alarmed when ~130 people all walked towards the entrance... More

Why it is my favourite cave, not for the welcome for sure. But the cave itself yes! Well located, easy to go, big, different than others, everybody like it. Like often in Slovenia, everything is well organised, and the walk inside remain easy. Compare to Postojna, it is a bit less family friendly, but it is more original and different... More
