Ljubljana is such a picturesque city, and I Iove that it's so clean and green. Postojna Cave was an amazing sight to behold, plus the train ride was pretty fun too! Dress warm! The cliff castle was fascinating and definitely worth seeing as well. Our guides - Dino and Urban, from Roundabout Travel were both awesome and humorous which made the trip entertaining as well as informative. Definitely a must do esp if you have a day free in Zagreb!

Our guides were exceptional and very accommodating. While I really enjoyed the Ljubljana walking tour, the cave was my most favorite. It's magical: an exciting ride down underground followed by a walking tour with plenty of time to take pictures and marvel at the weird formations.

Don't forget to bring your passport, wear good walking shoes, and pack a warm jacket for the cave. Since we came from Zagreb I didn't have Euros but you can pay with credit card for the cave ticket and there are ATMs in Ljubljana. We made several stops for food/water breaks but expect a very long day, depending on traffic and border conditions.

Long but very nice tour that begins in Zagreb with the company Roundabout picking you wherever you are staying instead of making you to a centralized location.
Our group were only 6 then we lost 2 as they realized they needed passports to cross into Slovenia and forgot them, our guide offered to drive back to pick them up, which would have wasted time, so they declined and took a taxi back to the city center. The rest continued to Slovenia. The border took a little bit of time and then it was smooth driving to Ljubljana.
Due to the delay with the forgotten passports, waiting for a taxi for them, and the border, we didn't have as much time as I would have wanted in Ljubljana as our guide, Dino, remained with the remaining 3 customers to eat something and then drive to Lake Bled while the tour host, Gabriela, and myself, meet another guide sorry, forgot her name but starts with J and two other clients who were staying in Ljubljana around 13:45 to depart to Postojna.
Arrived in time to enter the caves around 15:00 and had a wonderful time in such an impressive setting. The tour inside the cave includes a train ride in an out of the cave and a 1.5 kilometer about a mile walk with a special guide that works at the caves. After nearly 90 minutes the tour concluded and we then joined our Roundabout guide to continue to the very cool Predjama Castle. We arrived a little after 17:00 and saw inside the castle that was built using a cave-mouth as a backdrop.
We then drove back to Ljubljana where Gaby and I waited for Dino and the remaining customers to come back from Bled and around 19:30 we departed to Zagreb. I was dropped in my accommodation around 21:15 or so. Long trip but the caves are impressive and the castle was an added bonus to a very good trip.
