Here's your chance to get some exercise and play in caves and castles during your stop in Slovenia. Book this Koper tour for incredible insight into stunning caves, wonderful vistas, and enchanting caves.

Your journey begins with a scenic ride to the Postojna Cave system, a hidden gem in the country formed by the waters of the Pivka River. Step inside and meet massive stalagmites and stalactites at every turn. Admire the various colors and the concert hall, an acoustic section of the cave capable of holding up to 10,000 people for musical performances. Hop on the electric train to reach the more remote parts of the cave system. It is recommended that you wear a jacket for this portion of the tour as the constant temperature in the cave is around 46°F/10°C.

From there, you'll be escorted to Predjama Castle, a Gothic style fortress built within the mouth of a cave. This building has a secret tunnel that proved invaluable for one of its owners, Erazem Lueger. A 15th century robber baron, Erazem used the tunnel to escape the castle undetected and replenish supplies while he was under siege from the Austrian army. He successfully held off attacks for one year until his death, caused by the betrayal of his "loyal" servant.

Your tour includes transportation and a professional tour guide. If you're a nature lover or history buff, this is one experience you will not want to miss. Book your Koper tour today.
