Every Christmas crib or Nativity scene is a story unto itself and each one is unique. We believe that the living Nativity in Postojna Cave is something that everyone should experience – because of the very special venue in which it takes place.
Postojna Cave is already remarkable in itself, but a carefully prepared programme that every year delights visitors from all over the world gives it a special value and magic in the seasonal atmosphere of December. The combination of the subterranean world and the biblical story of Christ's Nativity creates a feeling of timelessness that leaves you immersed in a magical world.
In a Christmas spectacle with a tradition dating back almost 30 years, the Nativity is depicted in some of the most beautiful stalagmite- and stalactite-filled chambers of Postojna Cave. A colourful Christmas Market fills the esplanade in front of the entrance to the cave.
Postojna Cave is a pioneer among Living Nativity scenes in Slovenia and proudly continues the tradition. Booking in advance is recommended for those who wish to visit the Living Nativity.
