Caves in Slovenia  

  On our drive back up to Slovenia, we couldn't resist the opportunity to visit Postojna Cave, one of the best-known caves in the world. It is also the greatest tourist attraction in Slovenia. Actually, it has long been a tourist attraction and electric lighting was temporarily installed in Postojna Cave in 1883 at the time of the visit from Emperor Franz Joseph. Three electric lights lit up the Great Hall. A year after, electric lighting was installed inside the cave as a whole and Postojna Cave was thus illuminated by means of electricity for a whole three years before London.

But first, a quick stop by another amazing castle-cave: Predjama Castle.

Postojna Cave begins with a 2.5 km train ride
