postojna caves

postojna caves is the last leg of our day’s journey from bovec to ljubljana on 19.9.2018. ^^

after leaving the beautiful tolmin gorge, we drove about 2hrs to postojna caves.

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..

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.

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.
