The Postojna Caves are cavernous, in the truest sense of the word. There are thousands of caves, 24 km in total. Carved out by the Pivka River. Some of the karst formations are millions of years old. There is an underground train that travels into the depths of the caves – the world’s first cave railway! The history of the caves are very interesting as the Germans stored 1,000 barrels of aircraft fuel here during World War II. Watch out for the loveška ribica ("baby dragon" / "human fish") - a blind salamder that lives in the murky waters of the Slovenian caves. The tour is fantastic and well worth doing. The train takes you 2 km into the Great Mountain. Here you depart and cross over the Russian Bridge to reach the caves. You will also see the most famous stalagmite in Postojna – the so-called "Brilliant". Picture: Benoît Vrins - Unsplash
