STA, 9 June 2021 - The Postojna Cave, one of the main Slovenian natural landmarks, will reopen its door to visitors on Wednesday after a 231-day closure, the longest in its history, due to Covid-19 restrictions. "We are opening the door with enthusiasm, though with responsibility," the operator of the cave said in a press release.
Postojnska Jama added that it was happy to announce the reopening of the "queen of the underground" and the majority of attractions in the Postojna Cave Park.
The refurbished Hotel Jama will start to admit guests again on 18 June, while Predjama Castle will be reopened at the end of June, as the access path is being reconstructed.
The cave operator said that it had acquired the Green&Safe certificate from the Slovenian Tourist Board (STO) to ensure safe conditions for visitors in terms of the Covid-19 epidemic.
"We will also make sure physical distancing is observed in the legendary cave train and during visits to the cave in small groups," the company said.
Postojnska Jama reminded the visitors of the baby olms that were hatched in the cave in 2016 and are celebrating their fifth birthday these days.
"The baby dragons are healthy and have grown 1.5 centimetres this year. The largest among them measures 14 centimetres already," adds the invitation to the reopening.
