Postojna Cave

Postojna Cave is Slovenia’s most visited sight – it's touristy in the extreme but never fails to work

its magic, even on repeat visitors like me. Its formations of stalagmites and stalactites are unrivalled anywhere and it is home to the endangered Proteus anguinus, a blind salamander known as 'the human fish' because of its pinkish skin colour. Created by the Pivka River two million years ago, the 'cave’ is in fact a series of caverns, halls and passages 20.6km long. Visitors get to see 5.7km of it on a 1 1/2-hour tour – 4km via an underground train and the rest on foot on a path with some gradients but no steps. The cave has a constant temperature of 8°C to 10°C with a humidity of 95 per cent, so a waterproof jacket and decent shoes are essential. Thick felt capes can be hired at the entrance for €2.50. Check the website for package deals, including combination tickets that include Predjama Castle.
