Skocjan Caves, Divaca

(950+ reviews on the web)
Cave
Explore the largest known underground canyon in the world at Skocjan Caves, a World Heritage Site famous for its many waterfalls, diverse stalactite formations, and limestone pools. The caves feature 6 km (3.7 mi) of underground passages and one of the largest underground halls. With a total depth of over 200 m (656 ft), this system of limestone caves was inhabited as early as Mesolithic times. On your way through, you will pass a 116 m (380 ft) long tunnel, a dry river bed, a so-called "silent cave" and "murmuring cave." Look out for the huge stalagmites called the Giants and the Organ. The highlight of the trip is crossing over a 45 m (148 ft) high bridge. Bring a light jacket and put on good walking shoes since the paths can be slippery.

  • We visited the caves wavering between them and those of Postjoma and certainly not wrong. The visit was shocking with huge rooms and river crossing in its interior that leaves you speechless really. Visit 100% recommendable if you are traveling to Slovenia.

  • The cave tours are great, not that many people. Very beautiful, giant and still active karst caves. The way from Divaca to the ticket office is not well connected. The best way would be driving your own car. Or you could take the bus from the train station, I missed this bus just because I went to the restroom after getting off the train, so I agree that this bus service is not good also; or you could walk to there, it takes about 35 mins; in the end, we end up renting a bicycle biking there, which turns out to be a bad idea, you don't want to bike among the mountains before taking a tourism tour, it's exhausting.
  • Škocjan caves are part of the Unesco heritage. A must see if you visit Slovenija.
  • Do not go to these caves or the awful little town Divaca. The bus to the caves left early despite us being at the stop on time were unable to catch the bus and therefore missed the cave tour. The bus driver was rude, unfriendly and yelled at us saying he was at the bus stop at 3. The sign said they left at 3.10. What a terrible experience and a horrible place.
  • We thought visiting this cave after the postojna caves would be less of an experience. We were wrong. The Skojcan caves really do deliver in the mesmerizing department, and will leave you amazed for a few hours.
  • Amazing experiences in the cave. Great tour as you will be divided into groups of languages such as English, Dutch or Italian. Wish they allow us to take pictures in this amazing cave.
