Discover another underground beauty, along the karst edge between Postojna and Predjama, in the village of Veliki Otok. Due to its unique beauty, it has been caught on movie cameras several times in the past – Otok Cave was one of the main scenes in the legendary movie about the Indian chief Winnetou, based on the novel by Karl May.
Otok Cave is a dry horizontal cave with many dripstones. It is connected to other parts of the Postojna Cave by the tunnels of the underground river Pivka. There is no electric lighting in the cave, but the path through it is well marked and you don’t need any special equipment to see it except for flashlights.
Otok Cave is located 1.5 km from Postojna Cave in the direction of Predjama. The tourist section is 600 meters long and takes 45 minutes on an undemanding terrain.
Tours are possible upon prior arrangement and at least three participants are required to organise a viewing.
