An underground canyon, giant chambers and a river make Skocjan Caves an impressive tourist attraction that is not to be missed. The canyon is approximately 140 metres high. Martel’s Chamber is one of the largest cave caverns in the world. Large stalactites can be seen in the Great Hall, with many other formations spread throughout the cave system.
The Cekvenik Bridge in Sumeca jama Cave is a walkway high above the canyon floor and the Reka River below. A guided tour of Skocjan Caves goes for one and a half hours. The tour covers three kilometres of the cave system. Tours commence at the The Skocjan Caves Park Information Centre in Matavun, and facilities at the centre include a restaurant, a gift shop, playground and tourist information services.
There is a museum at the site which has exhibits about Skocjan Caves and other geological displays. Skocjan Caves is close to the borders of Italy and Croatia. It is a short drive from Koper, Slovenia. A stop at Koper offers many places to visit, like the Praetorian Palace, as well as activities around the shoreline of the Adriatic Sea. Visitors can catch a train to Divaca Station and that is only three kilometres from Skocjan Caves.
