Majlont is the name given to the old town centre of Postojna at the foot of Sovič. It is recognisable by its narrow streets and closely huddled buildings.
Destroyed by fire several times over the course of history (in part because of the nature of its construction), the town centre has always been rebuilt. Between 2011 and 2012, Majlont underwent a complete programme of renovation.
Despite the renovations, the old town centre has remained the most picturesque and colourful part of Postojna.
The people of Postojna still know where to find “Historical trail ” – where the famous Austro-Hungarian field marshal Svetozar Borojević took his daily walks to the top of Sovič during his posting in Postojna.
