Touring the huge, spectacular subterranean chambers of the 6km-long Škocjan Caves is a unique natural phenomenon, the creation of the Reka River. This river springs from below the Snežnik plateau and flows some fifty-five kilometres on the surface. After reaching the Karst, that is the limestone surface, the river not only deepens its riverbed through erosion, but also by means of corrosion – it dissolves the limestone. The Škocjan Caves remains the only monument in Slovenia and the Classical Karst region on UNESCO’s list of natural and cultural world heritage sites.
