    I never knew this was the most visited cave in the world, but I can certainly understand why. Fascinating to read about the cave-dwelling animals in the vivarium!

    Wonderful trip into the cave, Jean-Louis! I visited two caves which are similar to the Postojna cave: in Abkhazia (New Athos) and in France (Carbespine cave in Midi Pyrenees). They were very impressive especially the cave in Abkhazia.

    This is an excellent page J-L!! Really great explanations of the geological processes and beautiful 'forbidden' photos too! The 'Proteus' tip was fascinating. Your experiences reminded me of my tour of Carlsbad Caverns NP in New Mexico.
