Trevel: Škocjanske jame, Slovenia

This beautiful naturally formed miracle entered on UNESCO’s list of world heritage sites in 1986. We visited on a rainy day, but it being a two hour cave walk it didn’t really matter and also in the end it made for some magical pictures. Inside the caves it was forbidden to take pictures as it was dangerous (slippery and at times steep) and also all artificial light kills off the ecosystem of the cave. It was stunning, such colors and magnitude! Definitely worth a visit. Of course you can google and find pictures from inside but if at all possible, go see it in person! 🙂 It was almost a two hour hike through the caves with a guide who told us how it was discovered and what all the stone formations and colors meant. Extremely interesting, I thought. And the moment when you see day light after being in the very dark for almost two hours… It was sort of its own experience right there.
