We didn't know which of the Slovenian caves to visit, but the tourist office in Ljubljana suggested we visit Skocjan if we only had time to see one. We caught the local train from the central station and arrived an hour and a half later. There is now a free bus that picks people up from the train and transports them to the caves - this was a real plus given it was snowing. Be aware that the bus to the caves leaves the station less than five minutes after the train arrives, so be quick. The timings of the trains from Ljubljana aren't the greatest, which meant we arrived two hours before the tour. We could have got one that arrived about 15 minutes before the tour, but we didn't want to push our luck. However, there is a restaurant and bar at the complex (and spotlessly clean toilets), and you can take a walk through the bush and see the river. The tour we took lasted two hours and was about 2-3 km of walking. Most of the walk was very straightforward although there are quite a lot of steps. It was also a bit slippery due to the weather. Inside the caves are really spectacular. The river was raging as a result of rain and melting snow. Our guide was great - very friendly and knowledgeable. I think we paid 15 Euros per person. It's a brilliant day out.
