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.

Wow! What an amazing experience. The cave was really breathtaking and I would recommend anyone to visit, definitely a must see. The only reason I didn't give a 5 star review is because they didn't have a separate English and Slovenian group. We were together. And although our tour guide was excellent, she had to say everything in Slovenian and then English which sometimes was very long. On the website it made it seem like there was a separate English tour but maybe because we visited during the low season they grouped us together. Anyways, still had a great time!
This place is amazing to visit....you can hardly believe that there exist something like it in this world and the story of the rocks that grow. They are shiny and of different types
