Full description
Your tour will begin as you meet at the cruise terminal in Piran or another preferred location within Piran and Portorose. It will be from here that you head directly to Postojna in a comfortable and air-conditioned van for about 60 minutes.

Throughout your beautiful and picturesque trip through the Slovenian countryside, your English-speaking driver will introduce your surroundings to you in terms of history, politics, facts, and other interesting aspects. As you arrive to Postojna, your driver will escort you to the cave entrance and issue you your tickets (included in the price), before you join your tour group. From here you will enter the enormous cave complex on a small electric train (15-minute ride).

Following this, you will be guided trough the cave as you receive interesting facts about the history of the cave. You will then return back from the cave at which point you will have time to buy some souvenirs, have a coffee or snack, and use the toilet before you meet again with your driver/escort and head to the best preserved fairytale cave castle in the world. Located approximately 15 minutes away, this complex has more than 800 years of history behind it.

The castle was built on a 100-meter-high cliff, and is considered one of the most beautiful castles in the world. At the castle you will have time for photos, spending approximately 45 minutes at this location. Following this, you will meet again with your driver, at which point if the whole group agrees, you will make a stop at a local traditional Slovenian restaurant for some authentic food and wine served at affordable prices. Your tour will conclude at this point, as you are driven back to your ship or another preferred location in Piran or Portorose.
