Wonderland Underworld - The Caves of Slovenia
Wunderwelt Unterwelt - Die Höhlen von Slowenien
The most famous cave in Slovenia is the Postojna Cave. It is the oldest and maybe the most beautiful tourist cave in the world. Ceilings, walls, and floor are full of dripstones, translucent sinter curtains, columns, filigree tubes and basins. Through this wonderland runs what probably is the longest electric cave railroad in the world. A tourist attraction: Already, 32 million people have visited the 21-kilometer-long cave. It is the cradle of "bio-speleology" -- in no other cave in Europe live as many animals as in the Postojna Cave.
In Slovenia, there are more than 9,500 known caves. Archives of earth's history -- for scientists a treasure trove of knowledge about the geological context. For idealistic spelunkers, they are a perfect playing field to quench a thirst for knowledge and adventure. Speleology is one of the last adventures of our time.
