Postcards from Slovenia #55: Postojna and Predjamski Grad in Autumn

If you want to know more about Postojna and Predjamski Grad, you can find individual postcards on these destinations in my archives. Today, I just want to share some of the delightful autumn colours we saw when we visited in October.

Postojna Cave

The area around the world-famous Postojna cave has some delightful deciduous woodland which was just beginning to turn when we visited:

Glorious autumn yellows: shame about the cars in the background!

I especially love the russet red and gold tones…

The featured image shows the Pivka river, which carved the massive cave system. Inside the cave, the scenery doesn’t change much with the seasons, but here’s a sneak peak inside if you are interested:

Predjamski Grad

Predjamski Grad is ‘the Castle in front of the Cave.’ It looks particularly magnificent in autumn:

The Castle is built into a cave, providing ample natural defences.

The castle itself is fascinating to look around inside. For a photo tour, visit my Instagram. I’ve also joined Pixabay, where you can download some of my images and use them for yourself if you like! All I ask in return is a thumbs up, or (if you’re feeling particularly generous) a ‘coffee!’

I hope you enjoyed this Postcard from Slovenia! Stay tuned for more, as my travels continue…
