Today, Postojna is a modern, clean, and friendly city. It acquired the stamp of a tourist city primarily from the world-famous Postojna Cave, as well as smaller caves in the area such as Otoška jama, Pivka jama, and Črna jama.
Only ten kilometers from Postojna, the astonishing Predjama Castle perches in the middle of a high cliff, exciting the imagination with well-known legends about the medieval robber baron Erazem Predjamski and the siege of the castle that ended with his gruesome death as a result of a servant's treachery. more
Postojna and its surrounding offer visitors many points of interest to enjoy, particularly their unique natural phenomena and cultural and historical monuments. The undulating terrain of the area is ideal for jogging, hiking, horseback riding, bicycling, and collecting wild mushrooms and other fruits of the forest. The nearby peaks of Nanos, Sv. Lovrenc, Javornik, and other mountains invite also the more experienced climbers to test their skills. Numerous events also give the city a tourist pulse. The two largest events are certainly Furmanski praznik ("Wagoners' holiday") and the Knights' Tournament of Knights held at Predjama Castle.
