  • From Trieste: Postojna Cave & Predjama Castle

    2. From Trieste: Postojna Cave & Predjama Castle

    Postojna Cave, the queen of all caves, is the best-known cave in the world. It is also the greatest tourist attraction in Slovenia and one of the world’s largest karst (limestone) monuments. This is the only place in the world where the underground landscape can be traversed on an electric train and where you get to meet this underground kingdom’s most famous inhabitant – the proteus (olm) – up close. A fantastic web of tunnels, passages, galleries and halls, astonishing diversity of karst features, as well as easy access are certainly the main reasons for the popularity of the cave and a large number of visitors (more than 36 million of them in over 200 years). The Predjama Castle reigns over the surrounding area, not far from the Postojna Cave, in the idyllic village of Predjama.

What people are saying about Trieste

Trouble-free check-in with a printed voucher. Nice castle. We went there on the HOPTour and got back on it 2 hours later. It worked out wonderfully. That was almost too scarce for the garden. Next time we'll take the bus 4 hours later. The café in front of the castle is also very nice. Clear recommendation for Habsburg and garden fans.

Excellent Tour

Our driver, Nicola, was very accommodating. He picked us up at our hotel at the time he said he would be there. Our first stop was at the Castle where he left us on our own and told us not to rush. Then onto the Cave where he guided us to the English speaking tour. He met up with us after the tour. He did a great job.

Miramare Castle is beautifully situated. You can very well imagine how you lived with Emperor Maximilian, since the old original furnishings have been preserved. The castle, located on a promontory above the Mediterranean, can be compared well with the castles on the Loire and in Bavaria.

The castle is beautiful, and there is so much to see. Very large well-kept park there is a bar and even a small ice cream parlor. Well organized.

Really special experience. Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us lots of extra information about Slovenia too. Thank you!
