Postojna cave, Predjama castle and Ljubljana tour itinerary:
The tour starts with a pick up at the client’s accommodation. You can just provide us with an address and we will be there. After crossing the border (be sure to take your passport) and approximately 2h drive you will arrive in Postojna.
The tour of Postojna cave is fully organized by the cave employees. You choose the language of the tour or an audio guide and the next 1,5h you are in the expert hands of the cave guides. First you go on a train ride which lasts approximately 15 minutes. The train rushes through the stunning galleries among the stalactites and stalagmites. Inside the cave you have an hour of a walking tour through the cave getting to know the cave history. The cave was discovered at the beginning of the 19th century and today is the most visited cave in Europe and the only cave that has train tracks inside it. After the walk is done, the train ride out is again 15 min.
Just 10 kilometers away by car is the Predjama castle, our next stop. This castle has stood there for 800 years, perched inside a 123 meters high cliff. If you decide to enter the castle you will see how the builders intertwined the cave itself with the mighty walls of the castle. Below, above and behind the castle is a labyrinth of karst caves. It was almost impossible to enter the cave but the owners knew all the secret passages which made the people think they have magical powers of leaving the cave.
In approximately 40 to 50 min and we will be in the Ljubljana city center. Usually our clients first go for a typical Slovenian lunch and then to explore the city itself. Ljubljana has a small city center which you can easily explore on foot. Interesting thing is also a glass cable car taking you to the Old city of Ljubljana with a lovely view. The Ljubljanica bridges, the closed and open market, the Prešern square, festivals and events on the street and the city buzz will make you want to stay. Just take your coffee and something sweet and act local.

POSTOJNA CAVE & PREDJAMA CASTLE
The most visited tourist cave in Europe is a place where the proteus or olm offspring are once again hatching. The cave railway has been operating at the cave for 140 years. The cave is connected to Predjama Castle, the largest cave castle in the world. A fantastic web of tunnels, passages, galleries and halls, the astonishing diversity of Karst features as well as easy access are certainly the main reasons for such popularity of the cave and a large number of visitors, which has already reached 38 million in 200 years. A legendary tourist train takes you to the underground network of karst tunnels, galleries, and halls. Postojna Cave is the only karst cave with a cave railway. For 140 years it has been taking visitors to see stalactites and stalagmites and other features created by water. During an hour and a half long guided tour, you learn about all of the most important karst features, you see the largest, 5-metre-high stalagmite known as Brilliant, you visit the oldest underground post office in the world and the most famous underground animal – the human fish (proteus). All tours of Postojna Cave are accompanied by cave guides, who make sure the cave’s splendours are presented in great detail.
