I love immersing myself in all things natural, and Postojna really stands out. We drove here, easy to find with lots of parking available. Parking is pretty good value. The site has lots of places to eat so lots of variety and a good day out if you have kids or if you are alone. The caves were fascinating. Our guide was really good and learnt a lot about these fascinating caves. Make sure you dress appropriately. The caves are a constant temperature of 10 degrees Celsius, and wear good walking shoes. Everywhere you look in this Cave, it's just gorgeous. So glad I came here.

This underground tour opens up the wonders and capabilities of people living hundreds and hundreds of years ago. Be aware that although there is a train that takes you into the cave there is a lot of walking with some elevation. May be difficult for some.

Wear a warm jacket and possibly a beanie (as its about 9C in the caves), then step aboard the cave train and descend 2km into a subterreranean wonderland! Take a guided tour deeper into the caves and be amazed at the formations (we have done several cave tours before, but nothing like this!) Discover the small, extraordinary, eyeless, underground creatures (olms) - again, never heard of them! Then thaw out in the brilliant sunshine and enjoy a quick snack, drink or ice cream and enjoy the peaceful gardens and lakes surrounding this incredible World Heritage listed site. Highly recommended.

You ride on a train for about 10 minutes, then a kilometre and a half walk seeing the caves. We didn’t find this a hard walk, but I did see some older people struggling. Beautiful stalagmites and stalactites of all sizes. Then a ride back out on the train. Highly recommend this.

The caves themselves are magnificent, but being stuck in a mob of over 100 people jockeying for selfies and talking over the guide was stressful and distracting. [This is not an exaggeration, our guide mentioned there were 110 people on our tour.] Also, they need to ban phones and cameras – the guide was constantly having to tell people not to use flash or wander away from the group, and people kept using flash and wandering away from the group. At one point the guide wanted to show us the complete darkness that happens when the lights go off, but people left their phone’s lights on (despite her asking everyone to darken their phones), so it was useless. Having multiple guides sprinkled throughout the group might help with the constant policing that seemed necessary, though it would also contribute to the crowding.

I’ve been on a fair number of cave tours, and this was one of the best caves and worst tours. The train is cool, because everyone is seated in one place, though that didn’t keep people from holding up their phones to video the experience and ruining the views for everyone around them. Definitely not worth the steep price of admission!
