The Postojna Cave

Posted by Oficinas-Turismo on Tuesday, November 03, 2015 (02:58:30)

The Postojna Cave has been wowing visitors with the beauty and magnificence of its underground halls and the extent of its tunnels for two centuries. It is a breath-taking and bizarre world, with endemic creatures and caverns, used as concert halls.
The Postojna Cave is known for its unique forms of stalactites and stalagmites and has one of the most diverse cave systems in the world.


The main reasons for high visitor frequency and popularity of the cave are the amazing tangle of its underground Karst phenomena and accessibility of its tunnels, galleries and caverns. Enter the wonderful world of underground system through the renewed entrance hall. The 140-year old cave train takes you deep in the underground to the beginning of the marked trails, which leads you deeper into the cave. You pass different halls, where every single stalactite and stalagmite has its unique shape, form and colour. A special experience is provided in the glassed area towards the end, where you see olm (human fish), a creature endemic to the Slovenian Karst. Due to its appearance, some even call it a baby dragon. Before you take a train ride back to the surface, admire the great underground Concert hall, where different cultural and sport events take place. In the past the hall hosted Archduke Ferdinand I, Austrian Emperor Franz Joseph and Italian dictator Benito Mussolini.

Visit the Postojna Cave with public transport. The new connection between Postojna bus station and Park Postojna Cave has been established early this year. if you buy a combine ticket, enjoy free transportation between the Postojna Cave and Predjama Castle, Stop by the “EXPO Postojna Cave Karst”, the biggest exhibition about the Karst and the Postojna Cave, as the Karst’s unique phenomenon. Enjoy other adventures of Postojna’s attraction, recommended by experts, which ranked the Postojna Cave among 500 world’s biggest attractions.



In spring 2015, the Postojna Cave Management invested in a new research of the underground system. The following months brought favourable water levels of the Pivka river, which allowed top Slovenian cavers to engage in intense exploration of the system. In the field of caving, a discovery is considered proven only when one swims or walks through the tunnels, siphons and caverns connecting different caves. The expedition discovered as many as 3.5 kilometres of new measured tunnels. The Postojna Cave thus now measures 24,120 metres. First explorations of the Postojna cave began in the early 19th century. The entrance part was already visited in the 13th century but the largest portion of the cave was discovered by the local lights keeper, Luka Čeč, in April 1818. His discovery marked a turning point in the history of the cave. Less than 200 years later, the Postojna Cave became of the world`s biggest attractions with almost million visitors per year.

Las de Skocjan desde luego no creo que sea aconsejable, ya que se suben/bajan más de 500 escalones.

Ambas cuevas son impresionantes y merecen mucho la pena a pesar de la aglomeración turística.
Las de Postojna son de auténtico barroco. Una decoración extraordinaria de arte natural.
Las de Skocjan tienen un interior más austero aunque impresiona la enorme altura de las cavidades.
Son lugares que impresionan.

Hola!!
Dentro de 4 días salgo para Eslovenia y Croacia. Voy a hacer un recorrido circular: Bohinj, Bled, Liubliana, Zagreb, Plitvice, Zadar, Rijeka, Opatija, Pula y Rovinj.
El caso es que no sé si visitar las cuevas desde Liubilana o desde Rijeka. Mi medio de transporte será el público y aunque parece que están casi a la misma distancia, puede que desde la capital hayan más combinaciones. Sabéis si es así?? Yendo en trasporte público puedo ver la dos en un día??
Gracias!!
