The Postojna Cave

http://zelenikras.si/si/imagelib/source/default/znamenitosti/podzemni-svet/postojnska-jama-vlak.jpgThe Postojna Cave is a system of 20 kilometres of passages, galleries, and chambers, which have been visited by over 33 million visitors accompanied by experienced guides over almost two hundred years. At the same time it is the largest Classical Karst cave and the most visited cave in Europe. Already in 1872, railway tracks were installed in the cave, and in 1884, electricity was also installed. Today, visitors can satisfy their curiosity by learning about the origin of the caves, by examining the passages and chambers, and especially by observing the rising stalagmites or hanging stalactites, the joining columns, the creasing curtains, and the strings of endless fantastic shapes.

Fun fact: The only cave with a double track railway - For 140 years, the Postojna Cave, as the only cave in the world, offers a unique and adventurous ride with a special train, which will take you into the cave, under spectacular underground arches.

The Forests

http://zelenikras.si/en/imagelib/source/default/znamenitosti/rastlinstvo/gozdovi-1.jpgThe central part of the Snežnik-Javornik mountains is the greatest continuous uninhabited forest area in Slovenia and the wider European area. These vast forests provide suitable living conditions for a number of Slovenia’s largest beasts (the bear, wolf, and lynx), providing them with endless forests required by these populations to survive and develop. These species can no longer be found in the densely populated parts of Slovenia and Europe.
