We enjoyed this place very much! Not so turistic, so overcrowded such Postojna jama. Look like cave from some fantasy, Lord of the rings, dwarfs cave maybe. We had super guide, he was very clever, funny and his strong Slovenia accent was unforgetable:-) Realy recommend this place, for me it was much more beautiful and pleasant than Postojna.

Postojna Cave 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 monuments. A fantastic web of tunnels, passages, galleries and halls, the astonishing diversity of Karst features as well as easy access are certainly the main reasons for such popularity of the cave and a large number of visitors. Check the timetable of visits by months.
A short 3/4 day trip from southern Austria brought me to this cave system which is really very big so expect ot use a bit of time for the tour and the visitor centre. Also, don't underestimate what you will find here. The visitor centre is very high tech and informative with presentation methods and technology as good as any museum.
The cave tour takes a while and if you want to do the caves and castle, you will need to arrive early for the first cave tour. Cave tours take a bit of time but are exciting and informative and involve both a train ride and walking. Unfortnately, they are not suitable for all people with disabilities due to the nature of the caves.
Overall, well worth seeing and one of the reasons that I think Slovenia is very underated.

We parked in Mojstrana and took a walk up the hill to the tourist centre, where they were extremely helpful and friendly. From there we walked up the road, following the sign posts, which were very clear. We walked through the beautiful forest along the absolutely breathtaking river of azure water. The walk up to the waterfall is a good hike through the forest, but well worth the reward at the end. It is absolutely stunning! I can highly recommend this trip.

This is an easy (ish) walk, well marked with remarkably beautiful views, some strikingly vertiginous. Be prepared if you’re afraid of heights. The steep stairway down from the top to the river floor can be frightening, but the trail’s steel cable handrails are sturdily reassuring. Be sure to wear proper shoes (it can be slippery and the trails can be uneven). I found having a sturdy walking stick (not a cane!) also helped. There is a descent and a counter ascent you should also be aware of… For every 800 steps down, there will be 800 steps up! There are two convergent, glacier-fed streams, both a beautiful blue, and two foot Bridges spanning each of the streams. Another foot/vehicle bridge looms 60 metres above the water. We shared the walk with a middle school field trip full of well-behaved young Slovene students. The walk’s star attraction is “Dante’s Cave.” It is said that the Florentine poet of Divine Comedy fame visited his friend here in the area, the local ruler. The poet would make regular trips up to the cave, and it became an inspiration for his description of Hell in The Inferno. There is a nice little bar/restaurant at the end of the walk, serving local fare. The man in the ticket booth at the beginning (and end) of the walk was so very helpful indeed, and happy to impart knowledge about the walk and the history. For two pensioners, the fee was €8.00.

I love wörthersee cause of many things.... in Austria there are many lakes but few of them have the wonderful color blue/ green... the lake offers many sport activities , around the likes are many cute and cosy small ( few big) hotels with dry friendly personal and great breakfast.... any time a pleasure

Unlike the other famouse caves like Skocjan and Postojna, this cave is more genuine and less touristic. There is no electricity inside the cave (you get torches) so the shole feeling is different, as if you are about to join a research deligation....you also get to ear rubber boots so need no worry about proper shoes, just make sure to take warm socks. The underground lakes are impressive, and Igor the guide was very helpful and informative. Do not miss this site!

Start walking in Maribor's oldest park with old big trees from all parts of the world. Feeding squirrels and watching kids play. If you continue with walk you will get to 3 lakes and from there there are two paths to Piramida: from the forrest or from southern side qwalking through the vineyards. Suddenly all Maribor is in your hand, if lucky with weather, you can see further on all Drava valley.

Nearby Ljubljana and only few kilometres from the town Kamnik is located the bottom station of the cable car to Velika planina, which takes you amongst the green pastures of the mountain plateau in the heart of the Kamnik Alps. We recommend that you walk to the herdsmen's settlement and feel the simple way of the herdsmen's life, taste their dairy products and admire the unique architecture of the cottages which define Velika planina. To those, who are more active, the mountain offers ideal possibilities for hiking and various mountain-cycling tours. Best way to get on Velika planina is cable car, which takes you from Kamniška Bistrica valley to the mountain. Average price for cable car is 13€, if you want to go to the top with a chairlif, price is 15€.
High alpine pasture land is something special with their interesting wooden architecture, some cows walking around and many tourists, happy to be between friends, in small, simple restaurants with fresh food and milk, to hear some accordions in the evening. This is not a place for mass tourism or snobs. All others are welcome. They can walk up or use the Cableway. You can find small museum and wooden church between small houses. Place is just 30 km north from Ljubljana. Place is also minor skiing resort during the winter

Going to the mine is a unique thing to do anyway and here you are going in all the way you can imagine. Helmets on and Srečno. The guide was amazing, the people there at the museum very helpful and here you are it was wonderful. No preparation needed and no special tools or equipment just go and have fun.
