History of  Postojna Cave and pictures

On the trip from Lake Bled to the Adriatic Sea we made a stop at the most famous cave in Europe.  The Postojna Cave is second in size only to Mammoth Cave in Kentucky.

We arrived just before the opening of the cave.  Almost immediately other tour buses and tourists from other countries arrived.  The cave tour was about 90 minutes.  We entered on the cave train that travels about 2 km inside the cave.  An English speaking guide was waiting to explain the history and sites we were looking at.

The highlights of the different areas are outlined on the photo page.  We were not allowed to take photos, but I managed a few in the dim light.  We actually were allowed to see about 5 km of the 20 km cave.  We were about 70 meters (210 feet) underground at the deepest point.

We had lunch at a local restaurant before continuing the trip to the Adriatic coast.
