Camping Pivka Jama
Alan Rogers Review
Postojna, in the Notranjska region of southwest Slovenia, is renowned for its extraordinary limestone caves, forming one of the country’s prime tourist attractions. Staff at reception can arrange day trip excursions to the Postojna Caves for a fascinating insight into their formation. The Pivka Cave is just adjacent to the campsite restaurant, with 317 steps leading down to an underground river and a 65m gorge. The visitors' trail leads up the river before opening out into the magnificent Depression Hall with exquisite stalagmites and stalactites.
This is a peaceful, wooded spot and a great base for exploring the beautiful scenery of this region and historic places like the Predjama Castle (9 km), one of the world’s largest cave-based fortresses. The campsite's 300 pitches are well dispersed amongst the trees and in small clearings, all connected by a neat network of paths and slip roads. Some level, gravel hardstandings are provided.
This good site is deep in what appears to be primeval forest, cleverly cleared to take advantage of the broken limestone forest bedrock. It even has its own local caves (the Pivka Jama).
