Vrhnika Cave is located at Raskov’c near Štampe Bridge and it reaches 200 m in length and up to 34 m deep. It boasts beautiful stalactites and stalagmites and a
rich fauna. Access is difficult due to the problematic entrance and is only
possible if you are accompanied by experienced cavers.
Žirov'c Cave is named after the farm ˝Pri
Žirovcu˝ and is located on the farm’s property. The entrance is located two
kilometers northwest of Ulovka, above Vrhnika, and is hardly big enough to fit
a man. But the cave soon shows itself worth the trouble. It’s length –
five kilometers – was a real surprise for the cavers, because as a rule longer caves in
the dolomite rocks do not exist. To this day cavers
discovered and recorded a fantastic maze of meandering, abysses and canyons that exists inside
this cave. Žirov’c Cave was discovered in 2006 and became the 10.000th explored cave in Slovenia. Due to the difficulty of entry tours are only possible under the expert guidance of cavers.
