Slovenian Karst Region Discovery with a local 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.
The Lipica Stud Farm is the cradle of all Lipizzaner horses in the world. Nowadays it is one of the most beautiful cultural and historical monuments of Slovenia, its rich history reaching back to the year of 1580.
We will need approx. 1 hour to get to Lipica stud farm, where the original Lipizzaner horses originate from. We will admire and learn a lot about the elegant and inteligent white stallions, bred for the so-called Spanish riding school in Vienna in the time of the Habsburg rule. Time allowing, we will take a look of the Trainings of the Classical riding school, time permitting. MIND: Trainings only from April to end October!
After the beautiful farm we will take a half-an-hour ride 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. We will make a photo stop and learn about its misteries.

Barbara is a wonderful guide. She arrived on the dot, and was so informative on the drive to our chosen sites (Hrastovlje, Skocjan caves, Lipica); she knows so much and tailors it to our interests. Barbara chose a lovely local and authentic place to have lunch and helped us choose local specialties. On our return to Ljubljana she even helped organise a taxi for our continuing journey the following day. We cannot praise her highly enough.
