UNESCO placed the site on its list of natural and cultural world heritage sites in 1986, one of only 4 cave systems world-wide to be labelled as such.
In 2013 the website VirtualTourist.com included the Škocjan Caves in the running in its contest for the title of "8th Wonder of the World". From 3 June to 30 September site visitors could vote for one of the selected natural or man-made attractions from around the world – competing against locations from Australia's 12 Apostles to Yellowstone National Park makes it a tough call. But the 90.000 annual visitors to the caves know that, title or no title, the Škocjan Caves are a magnificent and inspiring eco-system.
