Postojna caves postscript

In a recent post, which I have now amended, I wrote about a visit to the Postojna caves in Slovenia. In conclusion, I said that I had “found the experience very stimulating but I also felt that the operation was not as user-friendly as it could and, given its UNESCO status, should have been”.

Upon reflection, that seems a bit harsh and, in part, inaccurate – the cave system is NOT listed by UNESCO. The planning and investment that has been undertaken to provide safe access to the heart of the cave system, without compromising its integrity, is genuinely impressive. However, I do believe that some further effort could be made to lift the guided-walking experience to a world-class standard. If that resulted in a modest increase in the cost of an entry ticket – for foreign visitors in particular – I don’t think that would be unreasonable, given the grandeur of the cave system.

About rmgtravelsandfood

Maggie and I are both in our mid-60s and live in Melbourne, Australia. This blog is devoted to our shared passions for travel and fine dining at home. As cooks, we are skilful and adventurous within a framework of mainly traditional ingredients and techniques, and we aim to prepare nutritious food that looks good and tastes delicious. Our evolving repertoire is influenced by both our travels and Melbourne's vibrant food culture. While we are young enough, our priority travel destinations are overseas, although we do spend a few long weekends each year exploring parts of south-eastern Australia. As travellers, we are most comfortable with a combination of organised and independent touring. Our first overseas journey together was to Italy in the northern autumn of 2008. We later travelled in France (2009), Spain (2011), Singapore and Cambodia (2012/13). All trips from 2014 to 2016 are documented in this blog. When time allows, we will publish posts about our journeys - eight and counting - in 2017, 2018 and 2019
