The Škocjan caves are about 4km from the town center and railway station. There is no regular public transport, but there is a spottily signposted footpath (35 min) connecting the two, or you can try to hitch a bus ride to the highway A1 exit near the caves.
There are several caves in the area. These include:
Škocjan Caves Regional Park
A few kilometers south of Divača is the Škocjan Caves Regional Park (Slovenian: Regljski park Škocjanske jame), +386 5 763-2840 (fax: +386 5 763-2844, email: [email protected]), . To get there by car, take the Divača exit from the highway and follow the signs.
The park's main attraction is its cave system that includes the highest cave hall in Europe, a massive gorge, waterfalls and a bridge over the gorge that looks like something out of The Lord of the Rings. All told, there are eleven chambers that stretch for about six kilometers and the landscape was considered so unique that the caves are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Admission to the caves is by tour only. It lasts about 90 minutes and takes you through two chambers: the Silent Cave and the Murmuring Cave. It's a good idea to bring decent shoes, wear a light coat (it's chilly and drippy inside) and be prepared to walk up and down hills. Tour costs €14/10/6 (adult/seniors and students/children).
There is some hiking in the area:
Cave related souvenirs (books, postcards, trinkets, etc.) are available in the gift shop at the Škocjan Caves.
There are some basic restaurants around the train station, and a cafe/restaurant in the regional park. There are also some restaurants in the village of Lokev, a few kilometers west of Divača.
Accommodation within Divača is limited to a couple of small guesthouses. Surrounding villages also have rooms for rent (look for the Sobe or Zimmer sign).
