We do not deny that it can be a tiring journey. However, the view is so beautiful that missing it would be a real shame. In short, if you do not go there you will regret it.
The surroundings of the Postojna Caves: Predjama Castle
We are very sure that the rock has conquered you but if this visit to the caves was not enough, know that in the Postojna complex there is another fantastic attraction, partly rocky, that you must absolutely see.
We are talking about the Predjama castle, very close to the Postojna caves and partly nestled in the mountain. It is not a recent construction, the age of the castle is around 800 years and it is a real feast for the eyes.
If the outside has struck you, well, get ready: the inside can also be visited.
The interior of the castle is a labyrinth of rooms full of history. The Castle has in fact become famous thanks to the Slovenian hero who lived there, resisting a year-long siege inside.
The armory, one of the largest rooms together with the lounge, also allows you to enjoy one of the most beautiful views in Slovenia, overlooking hills and a blue sky that you will not find even in the most famous paintings. The castle is also home to a whole series of hidden passages that lead to the caves but can only be visited at certain times of the year so as not to disturb the hibernation of the countless bats that inhabit them.
Traveling to the Postojna caves
If you are traveling from Italy (read more at https://www.better-tourism.org/italy/), the best way to reach Postojna and its caves is to arrive by plane to the Trieste airport and then take a car and drive to Postojna.
Not only because the Slovenian roads are very well organized but also because the view is so beautiful that you will love driving a few kilometers. Both the destination and the journey are absolutely worth it.
