Relaxed weekend in Postojna Cave

02. March 2020

On the last Saturday in February, TIK employees spent a relaxing trip to Postojna. Postojna Cave is the most visited and most magnificent cave in Slovenia, and according to most it is also one of the most beautiful caves in the world. First we went to the world-famous cave by train, where the underground karst tunnels and galleries intertwine. Postojna Cave is the only karst cave with a cave railway that has been running to see stalactites and stalagmites for 140 years. We also visited part of the tour of the magical cave on foot, along beautifully landscaped and undemanding paths. The river Pivka flows through it, forming the interior of the cave for almost two million years. In an hour and a half guided tour, we got to know all the most important karst features: the largest, as high as 5 meters, the stalactite Briljant, the oldest underground post office in the world and the most famous underground animal - the human fish. Not far from Postojna Cave, we als...
