In the vicinity of Divača, along the Divača–Lokev road, there is the Divača Cave that is waiting for you to explore it. It has been arranged for tourist visits since the end of the 19th century. The cave forms part of the comprehensive system of collapse dolines, chasms and karst caves shaped over time in this area by the Reka River. This is the very same Reka River that sinks into the world famous Škocjan Caves not far from here. The cave is famous for its extremely interesting formations created by calcareous sinter over millions of years. This breath-taking karst phenomenon, i.e. deposits of calcium carbonate from fresh water, creates dripstones and other forms that are beyond imagination. The cave is home to many species of cave animals and other types of organisms. The history of the Divača Cave also contains visits by famous people. Cave visitors include the Austro-Hungarian crown prince Rudolph, after whom the cave was for some time named “Rudolf Vilenica”, and Sigmund Freud, the famous psychoanalyst. The cave features a well-arranged and illuminated path of about 500 metres that is suitable for visitors of any age. The cave temperature is 8 °C and the visit takes some 1.5 hrs.
