Here’s a picture from my short trip to Croatia and Slovenia that took place last spring. This is inside Postojna Cave, a karst cave system near Postojna, southwestern Slovenia.
The cave is 24,340 m long, and it was carved by the Pivka River over millions of years. You can see some stalagmites, stalactites, and spectacular formations called curtains or draperies that look like folded curtains.
Another interesting fact about Postojna Cave is that it’s also home to the endemic olm, which is the largest troglodytic amphibian in the world.
Stunning places created by nature are always my favourite. What about you, do you like visiting caves?

What a great place to explore for sure
It is indeed; thanks for stopping by!
caves speak to an ancient place in our hearts
This is so true! They are so attractive to me that I almost always fall when I am in a cave, lol.
be careful, just because we have modern medicine doesn’t mean you have to avail yourself of it…
Visit to a cave is fascinating of course but I feel cold there, it’s not very comfortable for me even I take extra clothes with me…
That’s true! This one was particularly cold and wet, it was almost like it’s raining inside.
I have not visited this cave. I’ve been here in Spain for two now, also very beautiful.
That’s great, all caves are interesting and beautiful.
I would definitely join you if I knew that you were going to that beautiful cave, Ellie.
The last time I visited the cave was ten years ago and haven’t had the chance to visit such natural creations again.
Thank you! I hope you are able to visit another one soon! 🙂
I will pray continually that my wife will be able to take the long flight as before.
I would love to visit Postojna Cave. Impressive picture
Thank you, it’s even more impressive in person.
Looks very pretty and an interesting place
Thank you very much, dear Pamela!
This cave is 50 km away from me and I have never visited it, dear Ellie
You should visit it if you have the chance.
This is a Great to See.
Thank you very much for your kind words!
That is an amazing looking cave, I have been in some caves here in the US
Thank you so much! 🙂 I am glad you had the chance to see some beautiful caves.
I know this cave and it’s stunning. Nature works wonders.
I agree with you! I am glad I was able to visit it.
I have been in some caves; they leave strong impressions. This one looks beautiful.
I agree with you, sometimes being in a cave is like being in another world.
Beautiful photos. I have visited similar caves in the US and always enjoy them.
Thank you so much! Nature creates amazing things.
