The Municipality of Postojna (Slovene: Občina Postojna) is a municipality in the traditional region of Inner Carniola in southwestern Slovenia. The seat of the municipality is the town of Postojna. The municipality was established in its current form on 3 October 1994, when the former larger Municipality of Postojna was subdivided into the municipalities of Pivka and Postojna.
The entire municipality has a typical karst landscape. One of Slovenia's major tourist attractions, Postojna Cave, is located in the municipality. A second popular tourist attraction, located approximately 9 km from Postojna, is Predjama Castle, a 16th-century castle built in the mouth of another karst cave.
