Possible to take bus to Postojna cave and Predjama Castle?

by kelmn07 Online Now Aug 19, 2011 at 7:56 AM

Hello,

Is it possible to visit the postojna cave and the nearby predjama castle, on public transportation, and is there a map of public transportation routes? Would it be possible to fit this visit and a visit to Piran in a one day visit from a cruise ship?

Thank you.

    The Postonja website has info in English on how to get there by bus/train:

    postojnska-jama.si/eng/turis...

    You can find train times etc in English on http://www.slo-zeleznice.si/en/

    and bus info in English on:

    http://www.ap-ljubljana.si/eng/

    I haven't been to the castle but its website in English:

    turizem-kras.si/?cat=165&lan...

    states that you can get here by bus from Ljubljana or by train. It might be worth emailing them for more detailed information...it looks to me as if you'd need a taxi or a longish walk from Postonja itself.

    You *might* be able to fit in the cave and Piran (check train and bus times, but remember that Piran does not have a railway station..you'd need to get to Koper by bus/taxi), although I'm not sure I'd want to try the castle as well.

    You might also consider Skocjan caves which are less-touristy but equally wonderful (imo). You can get to them by train from Koper, getting off at Divaca and then walking (not very far). Info in English here:

    Was just passing Postojna few days ago by train on my way to France (via Italy).
    I was awake in the middle of the night and I was able to see the entire town... in the valley down from the station.

    So that seem to confirm... the way back to the station will be uphill to say the least. But the view was nice even in the middle of night.
