Families with children
Families with children are kindly invited to pay us a visit, but beware: children might keep on talking about the wonderful things they have seen for months after the visit!
A mighty iron gate is leading into the darkness. Even the first few steps inside the cave are mysterious and special. It is warmer than outside, humid, and a drop of water falling on your head may surprise you time and again. A ride aboard a cave train leads you through the cave areas where emperors used to dance, through the narrow slits between dripstones, passing secret cave paths and rock layers, which reveal millions of years in the history of our planet.

The Postojna Cave train has been taking visitors around the cave for 140 years. Its 3.7-kilometre long journey begins at the train-boarding platform of the unique cave railway, where – especially in the summer – a lot of hustle and bustle is present, the kind that is otherwise typical of...
