Postojna – a world-famous cave and the capital of the Karst


Visit the world-famous attraction and just say “WOW”! Above the mysterious subterranean world lies the other, surface side of the interesting karstic town.

The Postojna Cave is the most famous cave in the world and is one of the greatest karst monuments in the world. It is the only place in the world that gives you a chance to ride a battery-powered train through the natural underground landscape and see the most famous inhabitant of this subterranean kingdom up close – the human fish. The man who made all of this possible is a local called Luka Čeč, who discovered the most beautiful parts of Postojna Cave in 1818. This incredible discovery put Postojna on the world map and it received city rights in 1909, in the time of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. How this discovery influenced the development of the town and what ups and downs Postojna went through historically will be explained to you on the Town Promenade guided tour. First, you will do a 1.5-hour underground tour of the famous Postojna Cave. Overwhelmed by its beauty, you will then walk through the avenue of trees to the town (1 km), where a local guide will introduce you to the once lively character of the town, marked by magnificent buildings and famous townspeople. Nowadays, Postojna is the world capital of karst studies.

The programme includes:  

  • Entrance fee for the guided tour of Postojna Cave  
  • Town Promenade guided tour (minimum of 4 persons)

Optional extra: visit to the Karst Museum in Postojna
