Postojna Cave is a 20-km long karst cave system, a web of
underground passages, galleries and chambers, which has in
almost 200 years been visited by over 33 million people
accompanied by experienced cave guides. It is both the largest
cave of the Classical Karst and the show cave with the largest
numbers of visitors in Europe. Throughout its history it has
posed a great challenge for daring explorers who have shown
enormous effort and persistence and managed to penetrate further
and further into the underground world. The most interesting
passages were in 1818 discovered by Luka Čeč and no later than a
year after the cave was already set up as a show cave. The far-sighted
cave management deserves credit for the fact that it did not
take long for all the newly discovered parts of the cave to be
equipped for large numbers of visitiors. Prior to that, the
visitors had only been able to access the passages not far from
the entrance, where signatures of visitors to the cave have been
recorded since the 13th century onwards. In 1872, railway tracks
were laid in the cave and in 1884 electricity was installed.
Nowadays visitors can satisfy their curiosity by learning about
how the caves came to existance, by having a look at the
passages and chambers, and above all by looking at stalagmites
rising up from the floor of the cave and stalactites hanging
down from its roof, how they are joined as pillars, creased as
curtains and lined up in all kinds of fatastic forms. The cave
is easily accessible without any steps or any streneous uphill
walking. Part of the visit to the cave is done on the train and
part of it on foot.
