We LOVED the Skocjan Caves. We've visited a number of caves around the US and this one was spectacular in comparison. This tour does require some fitness as there are a lot of stairs and a lot of up & down throughout the tour. It was unfortunate that they don't allow any photography during the tour but you can see why, it would really slow down the tour. The area around the caves was very beautiful and luckily we were able to see the beginning of the fall colors. The Lipica Stud Farm was interesting but it would've been nice to see some kind of performance while we were there.

Mehrere Tage nach der Postojna-Höhle besuchten wir auch noch die Höhlen von Skocjan. Die beiden Höhlen sind so verschieden, dass es sich durchaus lohnt, beide zu besichtigen. Postojna ist ganz auf den Tourismus zugeschnitten, die Tropfsteine sind bizarr und spektakulär schön. Skocjan dagegen ist die Urgewalt der Natur, nicht aufgehübscht, sondern ganz ursprünglich. Leider darf dort nicht fotografiert werden; andererseits ist es durchaus auch eine Option, die Dinge mit den Augen und nicht mit der Kamera zu betrachten. Der Besuch im Gestüt Lipica hatte den kleinen Mangel, dass an diesem Tag keine Vorführungen der Pferde stattfanden. Wer besonderen Wert darauf legt, sollte sich vor der Buchung der Tour beim Veranstalter oder beim Gestüt informieren, an welchen Tagen solche Vorführungen angeboten werden. Gelohnt hat sich der Besuch trotzdem, denn es gab eine ausführliche deutschsprachige Führung und man hatte Gelegenheit, in den Ställen direkt in Kontakt zu den Pferden zu kommen.
