Welcome to Postojna!

“This is a new world. This is paradise,”
exclaimed Luka Čeč upon the discovery of the Postojna Cave back in 1818. And since then we have been one of the wonders of the world.

Stop and have a look on the city trail

At the bora’s doorstep, a place full of stories and mysterious legends.

In a place where winds from all sides of the sky meet, there is a post that is famous all over the world for the Postojna Cave. But those who are not just looking just for a stop, will find genuine contact with karst nature, people, and legends here.

The very name Postojna invites people to stay with us, as it also means “to stay a little”, which you will soon realise, is not without reason.

We joyfully welcome you with open arms and our thousands of years of history, mysticism, legends and top-notch offer. 

But the experience – that you will create yourself.


Postojna is the cradle of karstology decorated by unique karst wonders.

Here, where the Postojna Pass has been connecting the Mediterranean and Central Europe since ancient times, nature still creates wonders of the karst. Postojna is a true treasure of world-renowned attractions with its wonderful and mysterious underground world as well as its unique green karst landscape.



Follow the bora, stone to stone, each step is an adventure in its own.

Postojna is part of the Green Karst

Green Karst is an area, our little piece of heaven between the Alps and the Mediterranean. It is karst in the sense of a geological term that describes ancient rocky areas where water has eroded over millions of years and carved its way through the rock. On its way, it created natural karst wonders, such as caves, sinkholes, underground rivers, swallow holes and cave-ins, and intermittent lakes.
