The karst cave of Kostanjevica
The karst cave of Kostanjevica - presentation
At the foot of the Gorjanci mountains, near the source of the Studena stream, lies the underground treasure of the largest Karst cave in Slovenia. Here, rain water and underground water spent millennia creating magnificent, dreamlike stalactites and stalagmites.
The most impressive part of the cave is open for tourists, but cavers are still exploring the entire complex.
The cave is the natural habitat of the horseshoe bat. The idyllic clearing next to the brook in front of the entrance makes a wonderful place to sit and relax.
