In the immediate vicinity of Postojna Cave, in Proteus Cave with Vivarium, visitors also see some of the most interesting cave-dwelling animals. And just 10 km from the Postojna Cave is the location of the Predjama Castle, one of the most fascinating castles in the world. For more than 800 years it has perched proudly half way up a 123-metre cliff. Below Predjama Castle, there is the Predjama Cave System, which offers many possibilities for adventures, including special tours of the cave with suitable equipment.

Right next to the entrance to Postojna Cave is where the Jamski dvorec Mansion is located. It has been renovated into a modern event and culinary centre and is the perfect venue for unforgettable events. You can also pamper your palate in the nearby self-service restaurant Briljant and in the new Proteus Restaurant in the centre of Postojna.

Postojnska jama već više od dvjesto godina privlaći mnoštvo posjetitelja iz cijelog svijeta, a u srpnju 2013 ugostila je već 35-milijuntog posjetitelja, što znači da je Postojnska jama najveća i najposjećenija jama klasičnog krša u Europi.

Do sada istraženi dijelovi Postojnskog jamskog sustava obuhvaćaju dvadeset i jedan kilometar, njen slikovit i tajanstven podzemni svijet istovremeno je jedinstven prostor za najraznolikije jamske pustolovine. Samo u Postojnskoj jami možete doživjeti uzbudljivu vožnju vlakićem kroz nevjerojatno lijep podzemni pejzaž. Vožnja ispod veličanstvenih svodova koje poput lustera krase stalaktiti doživljaj je koji ćete još dugo pamtiti.

Posjet jami u prosjeku traje sat i pol, a za njega osim toplijeg pulovera i udobnih cipela ne trebate posebnu opremu, jer u jami je stalna temperatura 10 °C, a staze su uređene.

U neposrednoj blizini Postojnske jame, u Proteusovoj jami s vivarijem posjetitelji mogu vidjeti nekoliko najzanimljivijih jamskih životinja. A samo deset kilometara od Postojnske jame nalazi se Predjamski grad, jedan od najljepših dvoraca na svijetu. Već više od osamsto godina ponosno stoji usred sto dvadeset i tri metara visoke kamene stijene. Ispod Predjamskoga grada sakriva se Predjamski jamski sustav koji nudi puno mogućnosti za posebne doživljaje, uključujući posebni doživljaj razgledavanja pomoću prikladne opreme.

Odmah kraj ulaza u Postojnsku jamu nalazi se Jamski dvorac koji je obnovljen u moderni manifestacijski i gastronomski centar te je odlično mjesto za nezaboravne događaje. Okusne pupoljke možete zadovoljiti u obližnjem samoposlužnom restoranu Briljant te u novom restoranu Proteus u središtu Postojne.
