What To Expect
With your guide or on your own, begin your adventure through the labyrinth of staircases. Stop in different chambers and see antique furnishings and historical armaments. Discover the legend of Erazem Predjama, owner of the castle in the 15th century, who used a secret tunnel to collect supplies, mostly cherries, while the castle was being endlessly attacked.
Later meet with your group and journey to Postojna Cave. Hop aboard the electric mini-train and voyage into this cave along a rail system that was built in 1872. Learn about how calcites, stalagmites, and stalactites were formed by the Pivka river in this 20-km (13-mile) network of caves. Then delve into the interesting biology that resides here cumulating 100 different species. Hear about the blind salamanders locally referred to as “human fish” that wander the subsurface rivers within.
Emerge from the caves and hop back into your mini-van for a leisurely ride back to your Ljubljana hotel.
