I visited this caves coming from Postojna, and the comparison is inevitable. Well, Postojna is bigger and more beautiful, but bring not much to anyone who saw many beautiful caves than the size.

Skocjan is different: a first area also common, with the usual stalactites and stalagmites (Poor, indeed!) and a breathtaking second part - a subterranean canyon, 100 meters high, with vertiginous views and shades, and a river roaring somewhere below you. It's more than 2km walking in "impossible" trails, slipping steps, with a blessed fence assuring that everything will end well. And the end happens in a dolina, a natural incident where the canyon's roof collapsed into the canyon, diverting the river and opening a large and deep well with trees saluting the sun.

Pictures inside are forbidden (a pity) and that's the moment to the photographers, trying to catch... anything to remember the astonishing visit.
