Notranjsko-kraška region, Postojna Municipality ID

The underground Karst world with the world famous Postojna Cave and the intermittent Cerknica Lake is the most important feature of the Notranjsko-kraška region. As regards the area, this is one of the smallest regions in Slovenia; and it is the least densely populated, having 6 times lower population density than the Osrednjeslovenska region. The Notranjsko-kraška region is among economically less developed in the country.

The Postojna municipality lies at the contact of Mediterranean and continental world. Because of the good transport connections and position between Ljubljana, Trst, Gorica and Reka it has since ever been the centre of the Notranjska region.
