There is a a 3kms walk from Divača train station to the caves, by the train station there is also a bus station



Once they had a shuttle bus to the caves

Check out here: http://www.park-skocjanske-jame.si/eng/

Now during the day there are around 10 degrees Celsius ... so in two weeks time will remain more or less the same

The place are the Đkocjan caves are located has around 100 - 200 inhabitants ... I do not believe that you will need a city map

Go buy train to DIVACA TRAIN STATION and then walk 30 minutes to the SKOCJAN CAVES and walk back. Have a lunch there. Take a time. For me SKOCJAN CAVES are nicer than POSTOJNA CAVES, especially if you like to do some hiking and not just seat on your a...

unfortunately I have acute sciatica and I cannot walk the 30 mins and then do the tour of the caves and walk another 30 mins back. I have to conserve as much walking time as possilble. I cant do hiking anywhere I read somewhere on here, since June 2012 there is a shuttle bus available. I cannot remember if that is for the train station or the bus depot.

I think we are coming to your apartment Annette 17th March. Thank you for reply. Christine

I was also doing some research for Skocjan caves and according to Lonely Planet - Central Europe Guide, a van meets incoming trains at 10am, 11:04 am, 2 pm and 3:10 pm and will transport those with bus or train tickets to the caves for free. No mention of the return trip though.

According to wikitravel, the administration runs a free shuttle bus from the Divača train station to the ticket office before tours, and back again about an hour after each tour. http://wikitravel.org/en/Divača

Hope this helps.

Yes, they use a little 16 seater minibus from the station to the caves.

Last year they had more daily services 1000, 1050, 1104, 1145, 1400, 1412, 1510, 1523 so perhaps there are more in the busier summer months, can't say for sure this year.

If you want to walk (nice walk), get a map at the station (some old station guy may grunt at you but you'll get one if you ask nicely!)
