We have long said that nature’s finest works of art were made by nature itself. And the more we see new things, the more we become convinced of it. Slovenia’s, “The Postojna Cave” Park, where it is the second longest underground cave formation, with a rare wealth of stalactites and stalagmites that have shaped real works of art over the centuries and millennia.  

 

Although only four kilometers from the twenty-four kilometers are visited, Slovenian tourism benefits from them an enormous amount of money (the entrance ticket costs 25 euros in 90 minutes), coming from hundreds of thousands of visitors from all over the world and throughout the year.

 

Dozens of trains come and go every minute, with groups of fifty tourists. In addition to tourist visits, Postojna is also used for cultural activities and symphony concerts because it has excellent acoustics and one of its halls is Colosseum in height.

 

The special of the Park that sells as much as chicken is The Olm (Proteus anguinus), the blue lizard, a cave symbol that reigns souvenirs and everything else in the area. This lizard is very unique and rare because it grows in very few caves in the world and those few species were fanatically preserved in the aquarium.

Albania would greatly benefit from speleological tourism if its many caves will be visited.
