Škocjan Caves

The Škocjan Caves, sculpted by the flow of an intermittent river eroding limestone, have been included in the UNESCO World Natural Heritage List since 1987. They are considered to be the most beautiful underground caves of the Slovenian karst region of Kras.

They are famous for spectacular dripstones and a string of underground chambers located along a 5.8-kilometre long cave system covering an area of 1.2 hectares.

The Škocjan Caves and their surrounding area are managed as part of the Škocjan Caves Regional Park by the Park's namesake institution. Visitors can also view several museum collections dedicated to the unique features of Kras and take a walk along a nature trail.
