Conference dinner and visit to Postojna cave

Postojna Cave is the heart of the picturesque Slovene Karst. It was discovered in all its grandeur in 1818. Today it is famous for being one of the most diverse karst caves in the world. Nowhere else is it possible to admire so many different subterranean karst wonders in a single cave system. In 200 years, it has already hosted 35 million visitors from around the world. Nowhere else but here, have visitors for 140 years been able to take a ride with a special cave train which takes you around under magnificent underground arches, through an amazing landscape dotted with playful limestone sculptures.
