Postojna Cave, 21 km of Stalactite Paradise

This is the second postcard that Igor sent me, picturing Postojna Cave in Slovenia.

Stalactite paradise on every corner
21 km of passages, galleries and magnificent halls offer a unique experience of the underground world. The Postojna cave is definitely one of the most diverse cave systems in the world.”

Posta Slovenije issued a joint commemorative block with Austria entitled “Postojna cave, cave post office 1899. On 15 August 1899, 500 meters from the entrance to the cave, the first underground post office in the world was opened. 

The Salamander-like creature on the cancellation is an Olm. It lives in caves like Postojna Cave.
