The small town of Logatec was first mentioned in Roman times, when it was a strategically important staging post on the road between Aquileia and Emona, the ancient Ljubljana.


The town's development was originally based on traffic and transport services and later also on (mainly timber) industry and trade.

The town's character is mainly due to Logatec Castle and several fine examples of the Notranjska region's traditional rural architecture. Particularly worth visiting is the town's Military Museum (Vojni muzej), renowned for a large collection of military decorations from around the world. Logatec's surrounding area, scattered with numerous tourist farms, is characterised by a large number of natural sights including, among others, Planinsko polje, an example of a distinctively karst landform known as polje.

The road from Vrhnika to Logatec is the site of one of Slovenia's longest and best known tree-lined avenues. The trees were planted during the Napoleonic era, when Slovenian inhabited areas were part of the French Empire's Illyrian Provinces. The Napoleon Avenue, designated a historic landscaped area, consists of 290 linden trees flanking a 1,900-metre long roadway.
