The Living Nativity Scenes in Postojna Cave


Don't miss one of the biggest and most magical Christmas events in Slovenia, which takes place in the wonderland of Postojna Cave. The mysterious underground world provides a dazzlingly beautiful backdrop created patiently by Mother Nature over millions of years. Year after year, more than 150 local actors performing alongside top musicians put on a wonderful Christmas performance far below the Earth's surface. Sixteen biblical scenes are staged along a five-kilometre-long route illuminated by 2,100 coloured lights. A traditional Christmas market and a photographic exhibition, which take place at Postojna Cave at the same time, make the entire Postojna Cave Park come to life during the festive season.

This year's Living Nativity Scenes will again include some outstanding audio-visual effects and costumes of the Magic Theatre Serpentes. Apart from local actors, the event will feature some top musicians, including three outstanding vocalists. Helena Blagne will perform Ave Maria in her unmistakable style of singing, Alex Volasko will wow the audience with his interpretation of the Silent Night, and the performance will be rounded off with Amazing Grace performed by the angelic voice of Irena Yebuah Tiran.
