The part of the cave that is today open to visitors was discovered in 1818 by a local man: a cave guide called Luka Čeč. Today the cave is the most visited show cave in Europe and Slovenia's number one tourist attraction. More than 40 million enthusiastic visitors from all over the world have passed through the cave to date.
During a visit lasting an hour and a half, visitors pass through a full 5 km of cave passages, including 3.7 km aboard the cave train. Visitors are advised to dress warmly because the temperature in the cave ranges from 8 to 10°C.
Postojna Cave boasts some remarkable underground chambers. During the Christmas season, one of these chambers hosts the world's largest underground tableau vivant Nativity scene. This Christmas presentation amid the stalactites and stalagmites involves more than 500 participants!
