Welcome to the wonderful Postojnska Jama (Postojna Caves)!!!

Postojna Caves is probably the top tourism site of Slovenia. They are 21 km long but during the visit you explore only about 5.3 km: the longest publicly accessible depth of any cave system in the world.. The caves are full of fantastic stalagmites and stalactites with different colours depending by the the mineral melted inside them (red for the iron, white for limestone etc...).

The cave was discovered accidentally in 1818 and in 1819 they were opened to the public. Electric lighting was added in 1884 and in 1872 rails were laid in the cave along with first cave train for tourists.

Enjoy your visit!!!

    What a spectacular presentation. The photographs are so brilliant and vivid. The step-by-step organizational scheme is excellent, and the narrative is well done. Loved the travelogues and video.
