This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Postojna Caves, Jamska cesta 30, Postojna 6230 Slovenia
Small group approach with carefully planned time, where experienced local tour operator’s
chauffeur guide will collect you at designated location for an informative hourly ride to
Postojna to start your unique karst experience.
The Pivka river has been carving the Postojna Cave for 2 million years. The water level has
changed over time and created a beautiful "multi-level" underground world filled with
stalactites, stalagmites, columns, curtains and other gorgeous shapes was gradually created
as the water was leaving layers of limestone behind.
The first visitors supposedly came to the cave as early as the 13th century, but the most
beautiful parts of the cave were discovered in 1818. You’ll enter the cave by train. The train
ride takes about 10 minutes, and then you’ll continue on foot with a guided tour. Walk up the
Great Mountain (Calvary) which is an underground hall formed from the collapse of the
ceiling. Stroll under the needle-thin transparent tubes hanging from the ceiling in Hall of
Tubes. Admire the White Hall of pure white stalactites and the reddish colored Red Room.
From under the Russian Bridge you will reach The Concert Hall from where you can see the
amazing white Brilliant – a truly breathtaking sight.
The cave itself is rather peaceful and completely dark without lights. Despite that, around
100 animal species live in the cave! The main attraction is, of course, the proteus, which was
at first mistaken for a baby dragon.
Duration: 2 hours
Stop At: Predjama Castle, Predjama 1, Postojna 6230 Slovenia
Take a break on the terrace of the country inn in front of the defiant, mysterious Predjama
Castle and enjoy its stunning views. The castle is built as an impregnable redoubt, placed in
the gaping mouth of a cavern halfway up a 123 m cliff. The castle holds great features – holes
in the ceiling of the entrance tower for pouring boiling oil on intruders, deep and dank
dungeons, and an eerie hiding place at the top called Erazem's Nook.
After a nice half day experience we will return back to Ljubljana.
Drop off will be at same location as pick up.
