Postojna Cave and Predjama Castle Private Tour
"Lifetime experience" - that is how described this tour one of my guests in 2023. Two of the most known natural and historical wonders of Slovenia are awaiting for you to be discovered. This private day trip to Postojna Cave and Predjama Castle offers an unparalleled experience of these two famous attractions in one day.
Postojna Cave: An Underground Wonderland
If you’ve already been to some other caves (in any other part of the world), which are located in limestone mountains, the word “karst” might be familiar to you. By this word we name the process of slow limestone’s destruction and erosion, which is caused by water. So we name the type of caves which appears to be a result of such an erosion “caves of karst origin”. So the very word “karst” comes from the name of one of the Slovenian regions, in which lots of beautiful caves are hidden.
Postojna is often called “The Queen of Caves”, it is well known since the XIX century and even it’s (first in the world) cave railway dates back to 1872. Descend into the depths of Postojna Cave and discover a world of underground wonders. This karst cave system, which spans over 24 kilometers, is home to a diverse array of geological formations, including stalactites, stalagmites, and more. Our expert guide will lead you through the cave's vast chambers, sharing fascinating insights about its history, formation, and ecology. Marvel at the jaw-dropping beauty of the cave's largest chamber, the Concert Hall, which has hosted musical performances for over 200 years. This unique and unforgettable experience is a must-see for any traveler to Slovenia.
Predjama Castle: A Fascinating History
Embed into a 120-meter high cliff, the medieval Predjama Castle is an awe-inspiring sight to behold. This architectural masterpiece has been built into the natural rock, creating a formidable fortress that has stood the test of time. The castle dates back to XIII century and once was a home of "Slovenian Robin Hood" Erasmus Lueger. During the tour you can get inside the castle's walls, where you explore its winding passages and hidden rooms. Discover the castle's fascinating history, which includes tales of daring escapes, sieges, and even a secret underground tunnel. From the castle's lofty position, you can also take in stunning views of the surrounding landscape, including the nearby village of Predjama.
