Postojna Travel Guide: 139 reviews and 410 photos
Postojna is the Disneyesque version of the caves in Slovenia and the #1 tourist attraction in Slovenia, lots of tourists, an amusement park style train ride to descend into the caves, places to shop and eat and even a hotel. If you are also planning on visiting Skocjan Caves, I would visit this one first, Postojna impressed me but Skocjan blew me away. If you only have the chance to visit one cave, my recommendation is for Skocjan, not only is it less crowded but there's more of a WOW factor.
It was a very easy daytrip by car from Ljubljana for us, even with a later start than we anticipated we caught the 11:00 tour here, we went onto Predjama Castle, Skocjan Cave for the 3:30pm tour and then onto Piran, a very full day and only possible with a car. If you just want to see Postonja Caves, there are buses and trains from Ljubljana listed in our guide book.
Photographs are not allowed on the tour of the Cave but I managed to get a few poor quality photos as the train was whizzing us through to where the tour started.
- Pros:Interesting formations
- Cons:Too many tourists, unenthusiastic guide
If you are visiting Postojna Caves, it is easy to combine with a visit to Predjama Castle, 9 km away. Even if you don't... more travel advice
