The Pivka Cave is the final cave along the subterranean Pivka River before the river finally disappears and resurfaces in the Planina Cave. The cave can be accessed from the surface through a collapse doline. The biggest attraction of the Pivka Cave is a stunning view of the river, especially when the water level is high. The Pivka Cave entrance is located 5 km from the Postojna Cave. The 65-metre deep entrance can be reached by walking 317 steps. The cave measures 5,100 m, whereof 1,900 m can be seen as part of a tour. Electric illumination is provided in the section seen as part of the tour. The tour takes an hour and a half, no special equipment is needed. The cave can also be visited as part of an adventure tour.

  • The place is magnificent, is not far away for those who travel to Northern Italy should not miss this opportunity, is very worthwhile. The site is mandatory visitation to European nobility since the middle ages.

  • It is not the first cave that we've never visited but definitely is one of the biggest and most impressive that I happened to see. Definitely worth a visit even for once will leave with memories but with less full of "$" pockets like every tourist attraction.

  • In my opinion, the most beautiful caves of Slovenia, less known than those of Postojna, but surely to greater effect. Created the river Timavo, one of the world's most famous and long underground rivers (flows in Duino in the Adriatic Sea). Beautiful also the surroundings with the gigantic sinkholes that have to be seen and covered by a network of trails,
