We’ve done a lot of cave tours and this was one of the best.
I highly recommend doing this tour with Roundabout.View all reviews
Stories of Unesco Idrija
Discover the UNESCO heritage in heart of Slovenia
From Ljubljana directly to the Unesco town named Idrija. First, we will visit Anthony’s Shaft – the oldest preserved entrance to the mercury mine in Idrija and one of the oldest in Europe. It was named after St. Anthony of Padua, considered to be the cave patron and protector of disasters. We will continue with a city tour of Idrija and a demonstration of lacemaking. Some free time to relax or have lunch in one of the local taverns in town.
From Idrija the tour continues to the Wild Lake followed by one of the highlights of this tour – the Hospital Franja, which operated as a partisan hospital, in extremely difficult conditions and hardly accessible area, during World War 2.
