Underground discovery and historical mystery with a private guide


The Postojna Cave is a 21-km long karst cave system, a web of underground passages, galleries and chambers, which has in almost 200 years been visited by over 33 million people. There's almost no corner in the cave without a beautiful stalagtite, stalagmite, a curtain or similar. The cave boasts with the oldest underground train in the world, which we will use partly to explore this underground jewel.
Visit the Predjama castle, a misterious fort-like building close to the cave. It's a labyrinth, holding lots of different stories, including a secret passage helping generations living in the castle.

Itinerary

We will need approx. 40 min to get to the town of Postojna, which is famous for one of the world's most amazing underground caves, the cave of Postojna. We will take a train to get into the heart of the cave and then on foot for about 1h explore this wonder of nature with its uncountable stalagtites, stalagmites, curtains, towers and huge galleries and halls. (No claustrofobia, due to the absense of small tunnels).
The Predjama castle is located in a picturesque small valley in a vicinity of the cave (10min ride). We will enjoy its looks and reveal its misteries.
