Day 7: Postojna Cave or Skocjan Caves visit
We leave the Soca River Valley behind and explore the inevitable caves of Postojna or Skocjan depending on your choice.
Postojna is definitely the most popular one. It’s the largest show cave in Europe. While touring the 24 km (14 mi) long cave system, you will get to feel the magic of the underground world and experience a one-of-a-kind ride on Postojna Cave’s underground train. From the magical depths of Postojna Cave make your way to the fairytale world of knights. The Predjama Castle is another must-see Postojna Cave Park attraction – a veritable medieval miracle, perched in the middle of a rocky cliff for 800 years. Its unique location makes it one of the most fascinating castles in the world.
Skocjan Caves on the other hand are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This exceptional system of limestone caves consists of collapsed dolines, some 6 km (3 mi) of underground passages with a total depth of more than 200 m (656 ft), many waterfalls and one of the largest known underground chambers. The site, located in the Kras region (literally meaning Karst), is one of the most famous in the world for the study of karstic phenomena.
After visiting the caves, we will head to the Slovenian capital city Ljubljana and spend the last night enjoying its charming streets, restaurants and maybe nightlife.
Night: 3* hotel in Ljubljana
Driving: 2 h to the caves + 1 h caves to Ljubljana
