Introduction

The Škocjan Caves are one of the highlights of the country. The Skocjan caves are a fantastic system of limestone caves and forms some 6 kilometres of underground passages with a total depth of more than 200 metres. To add, there are many waterfalls and one of the world's largest underground chambers. The site is located in the Kras region (which basically means karst) and is probably one of the best in the world for the study of karstic phenomena. For this reason, it is the only place in Slovenia which is placed on the Unesco World Heritage List.
