Trek through Three Caves and a Visit to the Baby Dragons

In the period between World War I and II, when the territory of Postojna was part of Italy, three caves of the Postojna Cave system, namely Postojna, Black and Pivka Caves, were connected by means of man-made passages. The construction of man-made passages was a military project and, according to a plan that eventually fell through, the tunnel leading from the Pivka Cave was supposed to continue to the Planina Cave, whose exit was located on the Italian-Yugoslav border. The man-made passage makes it easy to move from one cave to another, which gives you an excellent opportunity to learn about the vast size and grandeur of the Postojna Cave system.
