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.

The castle is in another location but all the other no more than 2h. The entrance to the cave is at fixed time u have it on your ticket-don't miss it-and u can move with visiting the exhibitions around it.
