The limestone karst landscape of south-west Slovenia is said to have more than 10,000 registered caves, but the best ones to visit are either those at Postojnska or Skocjan.

Skocjan was carved out by the action of the Reka River, and consists of a series of subterranean chambers 6km long that include those called ‘Paradise’, ‘The Great Hall’ and ‘The Murmuring and Silent’ Caves. The latter is home to giant stalagmites called the ‘Giants’ and ‘The Pipe Organ’.
