    Predjama castle

    Predjama castle is 9 km north to Postojna caves. It is a very special castle because of its location, at the entrance of a cave! Aren’t we in the karst, in the country of caves, then, in such a country, why not to build a castle halfway in a cave.

    Titov trg

    This small area is the main square in the town and is where you can find the tourist information centre, a bookshop, a couple of restaurants and a café/bar (where I had an ice cream). There is also a hotel called the Hotel Kras that dominates one side of it.

    Steam train at station

    All along Slovenia's rail network you can find some fine examples of steam engines beside stations. Postojna is no asception. In fact it has the largest I saw beside a station. I think it was built in Naples in 1914 and weighs 116.6 tonnes and used to run on the line from Trieste.

    Planiska Jama

    Postojna isn't the only cave in Slovenia, just the most famous one. The whole region is criss-crossed with cave networks, especially the Karst region where Postojna resides. If you have a car and a good map, take yourself on an adventure and seek out some of the other caves, many of which offer impressive sites of their own, for example the Planinska Jama, which has a gigantic cave entrance, and is near the village of Planina.

    Town Hall

    by Willettsworld Written Oct 10, 2006

    This is really the only noteworthy building to see in Postojna. I think it’s the town hall as it looks like it’s an important building but I’m not sure.
