Explore the largest known underground canyon in the world at Škocjan Caves, a World Heritage Site famous for its many waterfalls, diverse stalactite formations, and limestone pools. The caves feature 6 km (3.7 mi) of underground passages and one of the largest underground halls. With a total depth of over 200 m (656 ft), this system of limestone caves was inhabited as early as Mesolithic times. On your way through, you will pass a 116 m (380 ft) long tunnel, a dry river bed, a so-called "silent cave" and "murmuring cave." Look out for the huge stalagmites called the Giants and the Organ. The highlight of the trip is crossing over a 45 m (148 ft) high bridge. Bring a light jacket and put on good walking shoes since the paths can be slippery. Put Škocjan Caves and other Škocjan attractions into our Škocjan day trip tool, and watch your holiday take shape.

I think this was the most impressive and stunning place I've ever seen. I was trying to choose between this and Postojna and I'm really happy I did both. People try to compare both caves, saying...

Amazing experience. The best cave I've ever seen. By the time you get inside, you are astounded by the plethora of fascinating sights. There are lines on the cave's rocks from the times when miners and excavators were exploring the cave decades ago. The overall feeling was a bit like Lord of the rings and as a fan of the books and series, I naturally fell in love with this. Once again, a beautiful and worthy life experience.
Beautiful caves. Very impressive. Also very popular, very busy and quite expensive (€24 for one adult). Finding a parking spot was a challenge. Nevertheless worth it
