Postjona Caves

I have to be honest that thanks to poor transport connections it feels like a lot of the last two days has been wasted and with better connections I could have seen as much and flown out on Sunday. Anyway in between long waits and train rides...

Postojna caves were discovered in 1818, the first tours were run the following year and they have run every day since including through both world wars (or so they claim). Unfortunately photography isn't allowed except in the last part of the caves by the gift shop so you will have to take my word for it on the mini raliway, the huge multicoloured formations of stalactites and stalagmites and the cave salamanders.

Also not reproduceable the unbeatable attempt of a German to explain the English word echo to a Slovenian "The sound he walks at the wall"
