Lipica Stud Farm and Skocjan Caves from Koper
Škocjan Caves is a cave system in Slovenia which together with the underground stream of the river Reka represents the most important natural phenomenon of the Karst region and one of the largest underground canyons in the world. Due to its exceptional significance, Škocjan Caves was entered on UNESCO’s list of natural and cultural world heritage sites in 1986. Its colorful underground world is adorned with giant stalactites, water rapids, and beautiful lakes. On your trip, view the world’s largest underground canyon and walk across the bridge which is situated 40 meters above the underground river. The panoramic view at the exit of the cave will certainly leave you speechless. At the end, you will visit the Škocjan Caves Regional Park, an open-air like museum, which is well-known for its ethnological, karstological, geological, and archaeological monuments, as well as for its natural and cultural heritage.

Read the description of the tour very carefully. The Lipica Stud Farm entrance fee is NOT included in the price of this tour. It will cost 16 Euro additional. I didn't pay the entrance fee because I felt for what we got the Farm fee should have been included. Also when organizing your pick up time be sure to clarify the time. The local tour company said they would pick us up at 8am from the dock. We were there at 7:50am. The drive to the caves took 15 minutes but did not open until 10am. We sat at the entrance to the CAVE for one hour 45 minutes. Not even the gift shop was open. This was a complete waste of time. Now for the Caves, they are spectacular - nothing like I have ever seen. I would recommend seeing this UNESCO site it is breathtaking.
