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.

The only Museum of Shells in Slovenia and other interesting animals from ALL OVER THE WORLD!More than 4000 specimens of unusual and rare molluscs! The biggest clam in the world, pearls, crabs, sea urchins,sea stars. You can see the shell of the biggest snail in the world, shells of snails so rare that only tribal chiefs of distant Islands were allowed to wear and many more surprises ...
Shells are displayed from all over the world. A very interesting array of different types, colors, sizes. The museum docent was the best in his infectious delight about the shells and gave us a handy guide to help us go through the museum.

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.

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.

This is a very interesting place and certainly worth the trip to it by car (public transport is impossible). A fortified church is already unusual but the frescos on the inside are certainly special. Well preserved (or restored) and a large variety of stories. Very detailed and interesting to see what was of intereste to tell the people in the 15th and 16th century. The explanation given via a recorder is extensive and the warden points you towards what is explained. They have explanation in many languages, even Dutch.
