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.
