Explore the largest known underground canyon in the world at Skocjan 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 Skocjan Caves and other Skocjan attractions into our Skocjan day trip tool , and watch your holiday take shape.
Skocjan Caves Reviews
Con i miei figli ormai adulti, abbiamo deciso di fare una gita tutti assieme in questo posto che dista circa un’ora da casa. Avevo già sentito parlare e guardato immagini su internet ma non è paragona... more »With my children now grown up, we decided to take a trip together to this place that is about an hour from home. I had already heard about and looked at pictures on the internet but it is not comparable to the magnificence of this place. There are 3 routes to choose from and we, having little time we chose the number 1 lasting about 2 hours. Given the cost of the ticket, reduced for children and students, I advise you to go from the morning and do at least routes 1 and 2, because there is really to spend the day there and it is worth it: it will fascinate adults and children. Go equipped as a walk in the mountains, with shoes suitable for the long walk and a sweater. You can't photograph inside the caves. Eat at the local bar that provides sandwiches, sweet drinks and ice cream with seating. Very recommended.
子連れかつ半日弱しか時間がとれなかったので短いルートを選びましたが、短いルートだと世界最大級の地下峡谷など目玉を見ることができなかったので高い入場料のわりに物足りなさを感じました。ただ短いルートでもアップダウンがあって大人でもけっこう疲れたので、時間に余裕と体力があるメンバーで端から端までじっくり巡ることをオススメします。夏のシーズン中だったので11時くらいに着くとチケットを買うのに並びました。朝... more »I chose a short route because I could only take my child and less than half a day, but i felt that the short route was not enough for the high entrance fee because I could not see the highlights such as the world's largest underground canyon. However, even a short route has an up-down and even an adult is quite tired, so I recommend that you go from one end to the other with a member who has plenty of time and physical strength. It was during the summer season, so when I got there at about 11, I lined up to buy tickets. I think that it advances crispy when going first thing in the morning.
The Skocjan caves were far better than I expected ! Really interesting. English speaking guide was very good, group size was good! Bikes and luggage can be stored safely, locked away. Easy to walk for people of all ages, just be mindful that there are many steps!
Absolutely amazing cave. Nice walking with chilling temperatures inside, around 12 degrees. There are around 600 steps to pass, but nothing difficult. With those ambient lights which are around half a meter above ground it looks stunning in it shows to you where the path will follow. I liked them, cause they still look so natural and pristine.
