The Postojna Cave Railway

Posted: June 30, 2012 in Slovenia

Something really different this time. The Postojna cave features the longest stretch of cave open to general tourist visitors in the world – 3.3 miles. And how do you get through this long stretch? Why, by a small electric train of course! While it may see a bit of an intrusion to run rails into a cave system, especially given the unique life forms that live there, it has certainly produced a spectacular and charming journey.
