How to get to the Postojna Caves from Porec
- By car, from Porec there is approximately 115 km to Postojna, the fastest route goes via Koper and the border crossing in Dragonja, the estimated driving time is about 1 hour and 30 minutes. In principle it is also possible to go via Rijeka and the border crossing in Jelšana, but this route is quite a bit longer both in relation to distance and travel time. I recommend you check the traffic forecast for both border crossings before you start your trip from Porec. If you need a rented car or a Minivan for the trip Postojna, you can rent on in Porec here.
- By bus, unfortunately there is basically no direct buses from Porec to Postojna, but if you go via Rijeka or Koper you will some bus connection to choose between. Bus schedule vary during the year, in the summer month you have more buses, majority of bus run from Koper. From the Postojna bus station to the cave you have 15 minutes by foot,
- By train: well, obviously there is no direct train (No train station in Porec), so what you will have to do, it to travel by bus or with car to either Rijeka or, Koper, the later been the better choice. From Koper you have a fairly large number of daily departures, with stop at the Postojna train station. You can check international timetable for trains here.

If you are travelling by car, you could combine the trip with a visit to the Lipiza horse farm, which is situated between Postojna and the Koper. Here you can read what you can experience at Lipiza.
