Postojna Cave, Slovenia
The Postojna Cave system is a network of caves over 24km in length cut into the karst rock by the Pikva river. It has been a tourist attraction since 1819 when the Austrian emperor Francis I visited. There has been a railway to visit the caves since the nineteenth century. It is the second longest cave system in Slovenia and I believe the longest cave tourist trail in the world.
In the cave system we can also find olms (also known as proteus (Proteus anguinus)), a fully aquatic salamander. Unlike most amphibians, the olm spends all of its life underwater. Ift is found in the karst cave systems in the Dinaric Alps in what was western Yugoslavia. It was first mentioned in 1689 by the local naturalist Valvasor in his Glory of the Duchy of Carniola, who reported that, after heavy rains, the olms were washed up from the underground waters and were believed by local people to be a cave dragon's offspring. This animal has adapted to living in complete darkness. It is blind but has very good senses of smell and hearing.

Amazing Postojna Cave System - Slovenia
See more details on the blog:
We had the incredible opportunity to go to the Postojna Cave system just an hour by bus or train from Ljubljana, the capital. The Postojna Cave system in slovenia stretches 24km through the limestone. It has been visited by several emperors and was actually blown up in WWII. While you can do the caves as a day tour, we decided to stay the night at the Hotel Jama which is a few meters from the ticket office and cave entrance. Newly remodeled, the hotel was both modern, reasonably priced, and kind of luxurious. The next day we took a guided tour of the cave system seeing the main cave and two additional caves. It was a fascinating tour of an incredible natural place with unique little salamanders that can live a hundred years and go up to ten years without eating. Even if you aren't into caves, this one is amazing. The caverns are huge and the infrastructure is thoroughly though out including an electric train ride into the main complex and back out again. Check out the blog post for specifics.

Postojna Caves , Slovenia in Ultra 4k
Version en français plus bas
From a geological point of view, the cave is several million years old. The first human traces discovered in the cave date back to the Pleistocene glaciation.
The cave of Postojna is a karst network located near the town of Postojna in Slovenia about 50 km southwest of the capital Ljubljana.
The cave of Postojna is a tangle of more than 20 km of caverns and galleries (discovered until today), where in 185 years passed more than 30 million visitors2. Indeed, these are the largest caves of the Carso, as well as the most visited of Europe. In the Pivka river complex, the most famous caves are the Cave of Postumia, the Otok Grotto, the Abisso della Pivka, the Black Cave and the Cavernone della Planina.
A view of the cave.
The caverns are rich in stalagmites and stalactites which form imperceptibly, and whose formation requires thousands of years. The development of these stalagmites and stalactites is due to the influx of water containing calcium carbonate which deposits forming the concretions.
The average temperature of the cave is 10 ° C, which increases slightly in summer and decreases somewhat in winter. On the other hand, the humidity is very high and it is advisable to dress a raincoat for visits.
D'un point de vue géologique, la grotte est vieille de plusieurs millions d'années. Les premières traces humaines découvertes dans la grotte remontent à la glaciation du Pléistocène .
La grotte de Postojna est un réseau karstique situé près de la ville de Postojna en Slovénie à environ 50 km au sud-ouest de la capitale Ljubljana.
La grotte de Postojna est un enchevêtrement de plus de 20 km de cavernes et galeries (découvertes jusqu’à aujourd’hui), où en 185 années sont passés plus de 30 millions de visiteurs2. En effet, ce sont les plus grandes grottes du Carso, ainsi que les plus visitées d'Europe. Dans le complexe hydrographique de la rivière Pivka, les cavernes les plus célèbres sont la Grotte di Postumia, la Grotte de Otok, l'Abisso della Pivka, la grotte Noire et le Cavernone della Planina.
Une vue de la grotte.
Les cavernes sont riches de stalagmites et stalactites qui se forment de façon imperceptible, et dont la formation demande des milliers d’années. Le développement de ces stalagmites et stalactites est dû à l’afflux d’eau contenant du carbonate de calcium qui se dépose formant les concrétions.
La température moyenne de la grotte est de 10 °C, qui augmente légèrement l’été et diminue un peu l’hiver. Par contre, le taux d’humidité est très élevé et il est conseillé de se vêtir d’un imperméable pour les visites.

Ljubljana and Postojna Cave in Slovenia
We didn't know much about Slovenia but it ended up being one of our favourite countries. We loved Ljubljana and spent a couple of days at the library there doing some much needed computer work. Then we headed down to Postojna Cave to take a tour and see baby dragons (olms).
WHERE WE STAYED
We moved across the world from New Zealand to London. We're now travelling Europe in our self-built Mercedes Sprinter campervan.
We have a 2011 Mercedes Sprinter van. It was a standard cargo van that we converted into a campervan ourselves.

A neat tour inside one of the largest caves in Europe. We were only privileged to see around 5km of the 24+km cave system.

Important to know!
The Slovenian Government intentionally robs tourists!
Beware! There is no clearly indicated place to purchase vignette stickers.
If you fail to get such a sticker, you'll come accross officers with binoculars shortly after the border who watch and punish.
As of 2017 the fine is EUR 150, which is pure income for the Slovenian Government.
We wish Slovenia to invest these funds in clear indications for purchase of stickers and not in binoculars.
Важно е да знаете!
Правителството на Словения ограбва умишлено туристите!
Внимавайте! На границата със Словения няма ясно указано място за закупуване на винетни стикери.
Ако пропуснете да закупите такъв стикер малко след границата дебнат служители с бинокли и санкционират.
Към 2017 г. глобата е 150 евро, чист доход за правителството на Словения.
Пожелаваме на Словения да инвестира тези средства в ясни обозначения за закупуване на винетни стикери, а не в бинокли.
