When our trip to Slovenia, to meet relatives, was planned, I thought Bled lake would be the highlight. However, Postojna cave was absolutely amazing. The hike inside is quite long and arduous if you are of our age (70ish) and it does get cold. But, my goodness, it's just spectacular. It's difficult to realize you're some 200m underground and, at every turn, there's more stalactites and stalagmites some so towering it's unbelievable. The train ride back is quite thrilling as you pass through tunnels where your head almost scrapes the roof.

This is one of the main attractions that cannot be missed when visiting Slovenia.
The price is not cheap at all, but worth every euro.
The cave is not far from the highway and therefore very accessible
At the entrance, there is a very large parking lot.
Before entering the cave, near the checkout, there is a very large restaurant, for those who are hungry or thirsty.
Immediately after entering the cave, you will be seated on a special train that will take you to the world below.
After getting off the train inside the cave, continue the hike in the cave, is on foot.
The trip is accompanied by a detailed explanation of the place.
An amazing experience for all ages.

The cave itself is breathtaking, would deserve 5 stars. But the organization around it is terrible, which makes the experience rather poor.
The little train ride already shows several great parts of the cave. The walking part could even be better, but you have very little time for looking or taking photos.
Even though the cave was not busy at all (corona, end of season, early in the day) the guides rushed the groups through the caves in an unbelievable way. They talked when walking (and walking fast!), did not wait for the end of the group to arrive, talked when the was a train going nearby and making noise, etc. So either you had to fight to be in front, close to the guide to hear something - then you had no time to take pictures and admire the view. Or you took pictures and looked at something for a few seconds - then you fell back in the group and did not hear any explanations anymore. Masks and no microphones for the guide is a bad combination!
Even worse is the parking. Maybe on busy days you see where the crowds go and you can follow them. But when I was there (just before the first tour) it was almost impossible to find my way. The signs are not poor - there are absolutely no signs! The parking lot is large and is surrounded by a park. In every direction there are paths but there is not a single sign "to the cave". I tried several paths ending up at private houses, not so great waterfalls, and other dead-end walks, until I finally found an employee, going to work, that I could follow. On top of the high price for the entrance to the cave, the parking fee of 5 euro is very high, because the parking is NOR guarded! There is absolutely no person around. The ticket counter where you also pay for parking is a few 100 meters away across a river, up the hill, close to the entrance of the cave. I paid for parking but my exit ticket did not work. In the pouring rain I had to walk back up the hill to have the parking ticket exchanged.
summary: great cave, but the extreme "money making" and "poor service" attitude is shocking.

Postojna Cave is something so overwhelming to expirience, that simple words are just not enough to describe it. At least for me they are not. You MUST see it and you will definitly enjoy it. Just the size of the cave itself, the actual train ride insade the cave, walking around...learning a thing or two about ot and its history. Our guide Branko did a fantastic job here, thank You for the patience and answering about a 100 questions aswell :D
People, just go for it. It's fantastic.
