Slovenia – Škocjan Caves

The amazing Skocjan and Postojna Caves and the Predjama Castle, in Slovenia

From the Julian Alps and Lake Bled, we took a drive on small country roads towards the most famous caves in Slovenia.

Along the way we stopped in the medieval towns of Skofja Loka and Idrija.

The town of Idrija is known for its beautiful handmade lace, and the town is dotted with shops selling patterned lace clothing, tablecloths, curtains, bags and lace flowers that can be sewn on to your own clothes.

There were also displays showing different tools and techniques of lacemaking.

In Idrija we saw a beautiful castle converted into a museum that had a collection of masks, used in local festivals that started hundreds of years ago and are still celebrated today.
