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. With our custom trip planner, Divaca attractions like Skocjan Caves can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

Indeed, the two areas accessible to the visit have fantastic landscapes. The visit is done on a trail of concrete with illuminated points of interest. The site where you get out of the cave is also very beautiful. However, no pictures allowed (even without flash) and visit with a guide only. We would have spent more time watching all this beauty... but we have to follow. We took the tour 1, and altogether it lasted 2 hours.
Bellissima la grotta. Vi consiglio di visitarla.Non serve la prenotazione. Abbigliamento consono. La guida è molto brava e preparata. more »Beautiful cave. I recommend a visit. You don't need a reservation. Wear appropriate clothing. The guide is very good and freshly made.
We really enjoyed our visit to the caves and found them very beautiful and interesting. Our guide was knowledgeable and did a good job with our English tour. Parking is available right at the entrance... more »
This is the best caves I've ever been. If time constraints and need to choose between Postojna and this one I would go for Skocjan (and they are also cheaper). I loved the fact that taking pictures is not allowed as you don't have people in front of you stopping and disturbing this magical experience. The visit starts with a short hike to the caves (they are not entered from the ticket area). It takes around 2h walking but my little children (5,7) did it without any problem
The caves itself are pretty spectacular but I would recommend informing yourself fully and make sure you know exactly what where is and how the routes worked. We wasted a lot of time hoping things might be relatively self explanatory and the information point was strangely more confusing then helpfull at first. After wandering around the area for a while we finally understood the ticketing guide (less) ticket process and got instructions how to start the hike and everything went smoothly from there. The caves themselves are pretty amazing a good steady walking paths for all ages providing you have a little stamina. Very well maintained.
Incredible! I have visited many caves but this one really was mind blowing in size! The caverns are enormous, to stop and consider that the river below carved this is incredible. We took the second part of the tour and thoroughly enjoyed it, highly recommend you devote the extra time to seeing this part as well.
The most impressive cave I've ever been in and I do have seen quite a few in my life. The pure size alome is just breathtaking. Very well worth the money. The second tour is self guided and has a lot more steps than the first one. Not as epic as the first one but still worth its money.
I recommend the ticket for both 1 and 2. First part is the cave, amazing views of the river Reka and deep cave underneath to look at. Guide was friendly and knowledgable. Second part is on your own and it is a walking part with amazing views and forest walking. Recommended to nature lovers and people who enjoy walks. Only problem is that free shuttle bus has only fee departures per day so plan your trip carefully if you don't have a car.
