postojna caves is the last leg of our day’s journey from bovec to ljubljana on 19.9.2018. ^^
here at postojna is a 3million yrs 24km cave system with electric railcar access. we rode the rail car 2km into caves, “an electric train which whisks visitors into the black abyss, with only a few lamps guiding the way. It zips through an expansive, open part of the cave called the Ballroom, which has been outfitted with stunning chandeliers—just incredible! “
then guided walk another 1hr total 1.5hrs.
we bought the combo tickets which included a visit to the vivarium. as the next available guided tour only starts at 3.30pm, we visited the vivarium first in the meantime and saw the ancient ohm & spiders, ants, beatles etc..creatures of the dark..
there are stalactites aplenty hanging down from the cave ceiling. 🙂
entrance fee to postojna caves & vivarium combined was about €32.
postojna caves is nothing less than stunning.
we are treated to dazzling collection of stalactite and stalagmite formation, breathtaking at every turn.
the most famous stalagmite of all, Brilliant is a bright-white, five-metre high limestone formation.
there is no limit and boundary to nature’s marvels. 🙂
we alighted the train, and followed the guide to a large lit chamber.
the english guide spoke clearly, had a good command of english, and had good knowledge of the caves.
there are many more chambers, old, new…
postojna caves was an awesome. the best cave i have visited.
the stalactites and stalagmites were just amazing, incomparable anywhere. but it is also the accessibility and the massive collection of tunnels and caves and chambers…
some may see this as excessive commercilaisation, for me it was good that the tour was professionally done, efficient, extensive and came with good english guides. no time wasting, nothing missed out.
