Skocjan Caves, Škocjan

4.7
#1 of 40 in Parks in Slovenian Littoral Region
Explore the largest known underground canyon in the world at Skocjan Caves, a World Heritage Site famous for its many waterfalls, diverse stalactite formations, and limestone pools. The caves feature 6 km (3.7 mi) of underground passages and one of the largest underground halls. With a total depth of over 200 m (656 ft), this system of limestone caves was inhabited as early as Mesolithic times. On your way through, you will pass a 116 m (380 ft) long tunnel, a dry river bed, a so-called "silent cave" and "murmuring cave." Look out for the huge stalagmites called the Giants and the Organ. The highlight of the trip is crossing over a 45 m (148 ft) high bridge. Bring a light jacket and put on good walking shoes since the paths can be slippery. Put Skocjan Caves and other Škocjan attractions into our Škocjan day trip tool, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • I suggest bringing your own flashlight with you because it's kinda dark in the cave. The cave itself is really interesting and totally worth the money. It's sad that you can't take pictures inside the cave but that is understandalbe. There are free parking lots just next to the info center.
  • One of the most amazing places I’ve seen so far. Totally recommended. Tours are offered in Slovenian, English and Italian.
