Postojna Cave

Postojna Cave 2007 White chamber.jpg

The 20,570 metre-long Postojna Cave system is the longest cave system in Slovenia as well as one of its top tourist attractions, visited by over 500,000 visitors per year. The 5.3 kilometre-long trail is opened to the public which makes Postojna Cave the longest publicly-accessible depth of any cave system in the world. Its Grand Hall can receive up to 10,000 visitors and often serves as a concert venue.

The caves are also home to the endemic olm (proteus anguinus), the largest trogloditic amphibian in the world. Part of the tour through the caves includes a pool with some olms in it, making this one of the rare places in the world where the olm can be seen by tourists.

Center of Jewish Cultural Heritage Synagogue Maribor

Sinagoga Maribor.jpg

The Maribor Synagogue is one of the oldest synagogues preserved in situ in Europe and a Slovene monument of the highest rank. In the 14th and 15th centuries it was a religious, spiritual and cultural centre of the medieval Jewish community in Maribor. In 2001 the beautifully simple straight-lined building was restored and reconstructed thoroughly, and since that time the Sinagoga Maribor has been considered not only one of the most important venues for concerts and exhibitions in the old quarter of Maribor, but also a popular tourist attraction.
