Discover another underground marvel, located on the Karst rim between Postojna and Predjama, in the village of Veliki Otok. Owing to its unique beauty, the cave has been featured in several films.
A One-of-a-Kind Marvel
The Otok Cave is a dry, horizontal cave with a myriad of cave formations. It is connected to other parts of Postojna Cave through the passages of the subterranean river Pivka. There is no electric lighting inside the cave, however, the trail through the cave is well marked and except for flashlights no special equipment is needed.
The Otok Cave was one of the main filming locations of the legendary film about the Indian chief Winnetou, based on a novel by Karl May.
