I was a bit overawed as we arrived at this cave. The infrastructure surrounding it was impressive. However, once we had tickets and assembled at the entrance, we were placed on a train with lots of other visitors and transported underground for 10 minutes. You...More

When visiting Slovenia make sure you visit one of the amazing cave systems. Postojna caves makes for a great afternoon after visiting Predjama Castle in the morning. Make sure to take a warm jacket as it does get chilly!

Unesco, beautiful experience 120 m under the surface. Magnificent carsic world, good guides... very interesting for children, train ride, chambers like churches. 10 degrees centigrade. You need to wear warm clothes. Must see in Slovenia. I recommend it.

The cave is very stunning. The tour guide explains the origin of the cave clearly. You will have an exciting ride before the walking part. Impressive indeed! Remember to go on time as you can’t walk alone. I will definitely go again!

Wow, what an experience! Once you get over the rather chaotic crowded entrance area, as they funnel you in to catch one of the mini trains, the experience is breath taking. It has to be seen to be believed as you file past millions of...More

the caves are served by a train, which take visitors about 2km into the caves, then you walk. Yes the stalactites and stalagmites are awesome but the guide we had, rushed through leaving several of the older people behind who missed her commentary. The formations...More
