The Postojna Cave is the CRADLE of speleobiology, the branch of biological science which studies the living world underground.
It was in Postojna Cave that the first specimens of most groups of cave FAUNA were found.

In terms of variety and number of species of Cave fauna, the Postojna-Planina cave system is the RICHEST CAVE SYSTEM in the WORLD!

In the new PROTEUS complex you can see a multimedia presentation of the Karst and life in the underworld, a presentation of the morphology (form and history) of the cave and a vivarium containing live specimens of Cave FAUNA.

Special attention is payed to the PROTEUS (Proteus anguinus).

The exhibition also features a speleobiological Laboratory.

The exhibition is wonderful and suitable for everyone who wishes to know more about life underground!
