Skocjan Caves

Skocjan Caves are problably the most beautiful caves in Slovenia beside Postojna Cave. Postojna Cave is interesting because of train ride and it is also more touristic. Skocjan Caves on the other side has very interesting stalactites and great walk above canyon of river Reka. It takes more than one hour to get through the cave. Also outside part of the cave is very interesting where you come in Velika doline. There is view on waterfall. A little further you can also see beautiful troughs of river Reka that are located between Velika and Mala dolina.

Triglav (2864 m) is the highest mountain in Slovenia. It lies in the Triglav National Park and it is the only national park in Slovenia. If you like hiking, nature, mountains then you must visit it if you come in Slovenia. There are many different ways to come to the top of Triglav summit. The easiest way is from Pokljuka or Krma Valley. It takes about 6 hours in one direction so you have to start with your hike very early if you want to go there and back in one single day. But anyway you can sleep in some of many mountain huts around Triglav but be careful in summer when more people want same so it can be everything occupied. And be careful about weather especially in the afternoon when thunderstorms are more often in summer. At the top of Triglav is Aljaz Tower that is symbol of Triglav (see photo).
