Tales of Slovenia – Experience the Postojna Cave (video)

If you visit Slovenia, there is absolutely no way that you won’t come across a poster or someone who suggests or rather persuades you to visit Postojna cave. Many might say that the attraction is over hyped.

There are multiple restaurants at the location, numerous gift and souvenir shops and much more. Apparently, from the outside it does not look at all like the entrance to a cave. Although these things will be a major turnoff for adventurers or cavers, most tourists are quite happy about it.
