Our next stop was the Postjona Cave system in the country of Slovenia.
The Postojna cave system is a 20,750m long karst cave, which makes it Slovenia’s second-longest cave system. However, it is by far the most popular, and several rulers in the past have made their visits here as well.
Since the imperial visits in the 17th century, things have improved considerably, in terms of convenience. Electric lights and a mini train system was installed, which whisked us off for about 15 minutes into the walking tour area of the cave.
It was very dark inside, and we weren’t allowed to use flash photography, so my pictures are very limited in showing just how awe-inspiring the inside of the cave system was.
The humid air, combined with the ominous shadows of the stalactites and stalagmites made for a very eerie almost haunted house atmosphere.
Our next stop is somewhere with a considerable improvement in lighting. Stay tuned!
