Postojna Caves & Predjama Castle (Underground Treasures and Legends)

Add to MyVisit Add to MyVisit

This excursion includes a tour of the famous Postojna Caves, the world's biggest underground cave complex, and a visit to the nearby Predjama Castle, built into a cave in a vertical cliff face.

The Postojna Caves, one of Slovenia's most notable natural sights, consist of a 27-kilometre system of underground caves, tunnels, galleries and halls with spectacular dripstones. A small cave train will take you on a tour around the caves, which are also known for providing habitat for Proteus anguinus, an endemic amphibian salamander.

Predjama Castle, part of which is built into the middle of a 123 metre high vertical cliff face, was originally home of the legendary outcast knight Erasmus. The present castle, which was given its Renaissance appearance in the 16th century, houses a museum.
