  • Very beautiful nature park with plenty of things to see and experience. From amazing sink caves to beautiful nature accompanied by peace and silence. During rainy season you can observe flows of river Rak as it moves from one cave to another.
  • In this area (follow trail to the little natural bridge) you can access an uncontrolled cave which is relatively easy to navigate provided you wear good footwear and take strong lights with you. Very step paths down you'll need to be healthy and fully mobile. After a dry spell with low water level you can just about get into the cave system. Spectacular but use common sense at all times. Preferably try and find a local expert it'll be more fun.
  • This place... This is in my absolute top 5 in the area around where I live (Trieste). Not too far (around an hour by car), not too touristy, no entry fee, feels wild but it's actually very well kept by whoever takes care of the area and it has a different feel in each season you decide to visit it so definitely plan a second, third and fourth trip (a fifth will be good too). The place is rather small but don't be fooled, if you like to take things slow and enjoy the details, it'll amaze you (so grab some food and drinks at home and stop to enjoy your time here). TLDR: come and enjoy the place
  • Light and darkness, water and stones... Nature in balance! Great walk with kids, because it is not just about a forest - caves are mystic and exciting. It is an especially refreshing trip on a hot summer day.
  • It was late afternoon, getting dark and nobody around. The walk down to the canyon to see the big natural bridge was slippery and the atmosphere was a bit morbid and the last place to be at. However the solitude gave the place a special value, that is hard to get at such an amazing place as Rakov Škocjan. The river was dry, the big cave/tunnel was dusty and the walls looked majestic, going all the way to the Weavers cave. I got the urge to climb these walls but fortunately this place is protected area. Maybe one day?
