Inner Carniola (Slovene: Notranjska) is a traditional region of Slovenia. Being one of the least densely populated areas in the country, makes it an ideal place for nature lovers. It may also be considered as an off the beaten track destination as this part of Slovenia attracts few tourists. If you enjoy seclusion in absolute nature, then this is the place for you. It is also possible to visit the area as a day trip. The region is characterized by wildlife, lakes, caves, hills and plateaus.

Many people living in the municipalities of Postojna, Pivka and Ilirska Bistrica do not consider themselves as being part of Inner Carniola. The reason for this may be purely geopolitical. In 1920, Kingdom of Italy annexed the western part of the region with the Treaty of Rapallo. The eastern part was included into the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes (later renamed Yugoslavia). It remained as such until after World War II.

As the area is sometimes being promoted as a single entity for tourist reasons, this article also includes the aforementioned municipalities. You may notice a local tourist brand called the Green Karst (Zeleni Kras) promoting the same destinations as mentioned here.
