Discover the hidden gems of Postojna Cave
The ‘In the Footsteps of Luka Čeč’ tour is carried out in the non-tourist parts of Pivka Cave and Black Cave as the last underground stations of the Pivka River. Accompanied by experienced speleologists and biologists, you will follow in the footsteps of the first explorers, and discover the most beautiful parts of Postojna Cave.
With your caving boots on, equipped with a rope, a head torch and a helmet, you will head to the hidden tunnels of the most attractive cave in the world and the largest tourist cave in Europe. This is an adventure for everyone who wishes to experience more demanding passages and test their strength by descending by rope and crossing lakes and the Pivka River. By performing fun tasks, you will step into the shoes of Luka Čeč, a cave lamplighter, who, as he was preparing for a visit by the Austrian Emperor Franz I, was the first person to dare to explore the then still unknown world of the Postojna underground.
