Postojna Cave is the best-known cave in the world. It is also the greatest tourist attraction in Slovenia and one of the world's largest karst monuments. A fantastic web of tunnels, passages, galleries and halls, the astonishing diversity of Karst features as well as easy access are certainly the main reasons for such popularity of the cave and a large number of visitors.

Whenever you are in Slovenia make sure you visit this place. Its one of the craziest underground systems I've seen.

37 million visitors don't mistake. Well organized tour both on the train and the walking part. Might not be colorful as other caves, but certainly impressive and interesting one.

Really great. After a short walk you board a "train" to the main cave system. The caves are very impressive, with all sorts of concretions. The guide is quite helpful (groups of about 30 people).

You may just turn up but it's always safer to prebook as there are many tour groups. We were lucky to arrive early and managed to get tickets.
