Day trip – Postojna cave & Piran

Postojna


Postojna is know worldwide for its wonderful cave, which lies under the slopes of karstic plateau at the eastern edge of the Postojna Basin.

The visitours entrance stands behind the administrative building 1km nortwest of Postojna town centre. The cave-train departs through the Congres Hall. The lateral caves in this part bear the names of former guides who discovered them. The passage then splits in two main parts after which the passes by the high Cypres to the Curtain- a transparent and lustrous formation just a few milimetres thick,which was formed on a sloping wall by countless bilion precipitate-rich water drops.

By way of a natural bridge the train passes under the Great Mauntain –a 45 m high mound of stone – block, which fell from the ceiling and with time, became by a forest of stalactites. Visitors alight from the train here and proceed on foot along 500m long, stalactite – rich Snowy Hall – so called after the white calcareous sinter on its ceiling.

Here one passes by the lustrous Brilliant Stalagmite, symbol of the Postojna Cave.

Piran


The ancient and tightly packed town of Piran has retained its medieval shape and character. Set between the Piran and Strunjan bays, at the nortwestern end of the Istrian peninsula, the town stands on a curved promontory, the tip of which is known as Cape Madona. This old port is directly connected with nearby Portorož and via Beli Križ, and the adjacent main coastal highway which leads towards Koper and Ljubljana.

A typical medieval Mediterranean town with closely packed ranks of houses separated by narrow winding streets, broken here and there by the occasional square of intense splashes of lush vegetation (cypresses, olive and almond trees, as well as other early fruit trees and vegetables). Pirans narrow streets make the ordinary flow of traffic impossible, therefore, there are sea front parking places just outside the town on the roud from Portorož.
