The most interesting point in the caves is the ride by train.
It is a narrow and light equipment,making you feel lika in a natural luna park. your head will pass at a few centimeters from the rocks, here and there cut to allow the passage and prevent accidents. The speed is a compromise between emotion and time to quickly apreciate some details.
Using several segments in both ways, the different angles and the separated lines here and there, make you feel always facing something new.
Visits are every 2 hours from 10 AM to 6 PM. In the low season, there are fewer visits. The visit lasts 90 minutes.
Price for the visit of the cave is 16 €
Price for the visit of the vivarium is 6 €
Price for the visit of the cave and vivarium is 19 €
Favorite thing: The main tourist information office can be found in the town centre on Titov trg which is the main square where the road leads to the cave entrance. I popped in to get a map of the town but they don’t exist. You don’t actually need one as there’s not much to see in the town itself. The girl there speaks very good English and is rather pleasing on the eye ;-) I asked how far is it to the cave entrance as it says it’s roughly 1.5-2km in Lonely Planet but she said it’s only about 800m-1km so it’s easily walk-able.
Fondest memory: As we entered the caves there was a little train to take you deeper into the series of caves. Given the fact that we had actually travelled to our holiday across Eurpoe by train, it was a joy to take another train journey. These trains are run by electric to minimise the pollution within the caves.
