You will be picked up from your accommodation in Trieste at 8.45 a.m. to start a wonderful morning tour exploring the Postojna cave complex, one of the largest and most easily accessible networks of underground caves in the world. All travelers visiting the cave are beckoned from afar by the inscription above the entrance "Immensum ad antrum aditus!", "Enter, traveler, into this immensity!" The vastness of this underground realm is breathtaking as is its secret beauty.
The visit begins with a short ride in an electric train and continues with a guided walk through a series of foodlit subterranean caverns, halls and corridors carved out by the Pivka River through the centuries and decorated with shining stalactites and stalagmites and enormous maze of crystalline stone curtains, pillars and altars. The underground waters flowing in the cave system are also the home of the world's unique "human fish" , an endangered species of the amphibian Proteus Anguinus, which is the only cave-dwelling vertebrate in Europe. The tour lasts about 90 minutes. The temperature inside the cave is 8°C year round so a warm jacket is recommended.
