Getting here

We are always happy to see you, so to make it as easy as possible for you to get here we have put together some tips that you might find useful. Numerous options are available, when it comes to travelling to the wonderful Postojna municipality. It owes its excellent access by road, rail and air to its important role in history, its remarkable location and the strong desire of its inhabitants, sensible of its inestimable value as a town, to promote its development.

Postojna's airport (known locally as the Rakitnik airfield) is located 3 km SW of Postojna. It is suitable for sports and touring aircraft of a total mass of up to 5,700 kg. The airfield can be used by aircraft from EU countries but only if they have previously landed at one of the country's international airports (Ljubljana, Maribor or Portorož), after which, having notified the airfield and obtained permission, they can land at Postojna (Rakitnik).
