Green Light for the Postojna Cave Train
After the longest temporary closure in Postojna Cave’s entire history, which lasted no fewer than 231 days, we are very pleased to share some good news: the queen of the subterranean world and most of the Postojna Cave Park attractions are reopening. We are really enthusiastic about the reopening, however, as holders of the SAFE TRAVELS label approved by World Travel & Tourism Council, we are committed to making sure our guests are provided with safe conditions, services of the highest quality and an unforgettable experience.
Now that the summer is fast approaching, the situation around the world is improving. As the borders are reopening, we have been getting a lot of questions from visitors across the globe. And now we finally…
…HAVE THE ANSWERS!
1) “Can we come tomorrow?”
With the situation getting better, the company managing the Postojna Cave Park and the boutique hotel Vila Planinka in Jezersko is striving to keep abreast of the current situation and provide its guests and staff with the highest standards and protocols for a carefree visit and a safe stay in Slovenia. In line with all the best-practice recommendations,
- boutique hotel Vila Planinka 5* in Jezersko reopened on 18 May;

- the completely refurbished Hotel Jama 4* and the Secret Rooms of Hotel Jama will reopen on 18 June;
- Predjama Castle will reopen in late June as the path to the castle is currently being renovated.
2) “Can Covid Tourism Vouchers be used to visit Postojna Cave and other attractions?”
We are very pleased to be able to say ‘YES, FINALLY!’. The the new vouchers, issued in response to the epidemic, can be used to visit Postojna Cave as well as the Predjama Castle and other attractions that are part of the Postojna Cave Park. According to unofficial information, the new vouchers are expected to be introduced in July. They will be redeemable in establishments offering food & beverages, culture, sports and recreation services. They can already be used in all our accommodation facilities.

And in the boutique hotel Vila Planinka 5* in Jezersko, you can take advantage of various amazing special deals and enjoy a refreshed menu prepared for the summer, while Slovenia is the European Region of Gastronomy 2021.
3) “How are the baby dragons doing?”
So far this year, their only visitors have been the two biologists that take care of them, Primož and Katarina. The baby olms, which are about to turn 5, are perfectly healthy and have grown 1.5 cm since the start of the year. The largest of them is now 14 cm in length!
4) “Is it necessary to meet any specific requirements to tour Postojna Cave (a negative PCR/RAT test; proof of vaccination; recovery from COVID-19)?”
This is not required, however, some basic protective measures need to be observed, such as hand hygiene, wearing a face mask and keeping a safe distance. Rest assured that a safe distance will be ensured on Postojna Cave’s iconic cave train and during the cave tours in small groups.
We believe that we are a mature and responsible society and that our guests will behave accordingly. A relaxed but responsible attitude to yourself and others.
The entire Postojna Cave Park, Hotel Jama 4* and the boutique hotel Vila Planinka 5* are the holders of the SAFE TRAVELS label. We are a green and safe tourist destination.
With the resumption of tourism and the reopening of Postojna Cave, we want to offer our guests nothing but the best! We have prepared an exclusive FAMILY DISCOUNT on ordinary Postojna Cave tours and a family tour of Postojna Cave with a visit to the baby dragons (two weekends only)! After the year we’ve had, we all deserve a gift at the end of the school year!
