Ride on a double-track railway through the underground tunnels of Postojna Cave and see colorful rock formations, as well as the 100 species that make the caves their home. One of the largest caves in the extensive karst plateau features 21 km (13 mi) of passages, galleries, and chambers illuminated by electric lighting. A historical train takes you to large halls adorned with chandelier-like stalactites and limestone "sculptures," such as "the brilliant," a shiny white limestone formation. Meet the olm, a salamander popularly called the dragon's offspring or the human fish. Archduke Ferdinand I was the first to officially visit the cave in 1819, but several writings on the cave walls date all the way back to the 13th century. Note that audioguides are available in a range of languages. You can plan Postojna trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

Postojna Cave reviews
I've been to a lot of caves , but this was the most amazing one I have ever visited! The tour is about 1,5hrs, incl the little train. more »
When our trip to Slovenia, to meet relatives, was planned, I thought Bled lake would be the highlight. However, Postojna cave was absolutely amazing. The hike inside is quite long and arduous if you..... more »
This is one of the main attractions that cannot be missed when visiting Slovenia. The price is not cheap at all, but worth every euro. The cave is not far from the highway and therefore very... more »
Truly remarkable place. I was very impressed about the whole experience, train ride, toured guide, amount of work put at that place to be proper tourist attraction and yet it remain true to its nature. I will definitely visit it again in future and maybe even explore it thoroughly next time (there is also a special tour for explorers).
Took our son here to ride the train through the cave just after Christmas. We ordered tickets online the day before and arrived a little bit late they changed our tickets to match the next tour with no issue. They have several different language options for the tour you just stand in line for the tour language option you want. You ride the train through the cave until you reach the stop and then you walk the rest of the way through. The tour guide will tell you all about the caves as you walk through. There is a gift shop at the end and a pretty snow globe with a model of the cave and train. I highly recommend this place for children and families.
This place is awesome! The works of mother nature are magnificently preserved though the centuries. The train ride is enjoyable but the trekking part can be improved as the guide that was assigned to our group was simply going through the motion and was more interested to complete his job as quickly as possible.
A great cave to visit. If you go on the tour you’ll take a small train ride which feels like one you’d go on in an amusement park. This takes 7 minutes. The guide will walk you through showing parts of interest. There are no steps, only steep concrete path ways as you walk through the cave. Very doable. The tour includes a train ride back to the main area. In total you will see 1.5km of the 24km cave system.
Really amazing experience. The train ride and the tour were unforgettable. Don’t use flash in the cave! Bring jacket with you as it’s a bit cold inside. For winter visit, lose the heavy layers before your visit, one down jacket should be enough.
