Day trip – Postojna cave & Bled
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.
This lakeside settlement is one of the oldest tourist centres in Slovenia. Lake Bled was created only about 14 000 years ago when waret flooded the depression left by receding glacier. Todey it is 2120 m long, betwen 500m and 1000m wide, and 31m deep. Its surface temperature in summer is 24C and it remains warm enough for swimming until the autumn, when the temperature is still above 18C. In colder winters the lake freezes.
Bled Castle, located atop a solitary rock 139m above the lake, is one of the older historic monuments in Slovenia.
Hiking paths have been laid out around the lake and in its vicinity. There are swimming areas along the western shore of the lake and the north-ern shore, beneath the castle. A boat rental facility is also to be found beneath the castle.
