I've been to many castles of Europe, from Neuschwanstein Castle and Burg Eltz in Germany to Hohensalzburg Castle in Salzburg and Eilean Donan Castle in Scotland. Predjama is one of the top 5 in my book, the shear impressive site of a impressive and remarkably preserved castle built into a rock face with a small stream emptying water in the... More

Get the Audio guide... no really get it get it get it. It's only 2 euros, you can share it with another 1 or 2 people, the volume is good. Not much to read so you need it and it adds so much to the castle. Be aware it's 9km from the caves and no organised transport outside July and... More

Really worth a visit. This is such an unusual and pretty castle. it's hardly changed since 1500s... The audio tour is also very good - it's clear, the English is excellent, its easy to follow and the content is very good. I really enjoyed my visit and would recommend it to others.

... again, I think the whole organisation takes greedy to a whole new level. Like Postojna, it is a beautiful place. But even with the package (Caves+Castle) you would still have to pay some extra to get an audio guide. As our guide on the bus said: visiting only is very different from visiting and listening to it´s history. Slovenia... More

Please visit this beautiful castle because it's worth! The interiors are poor but the view from outsider and from inside are gorgeous! Not far from Postojna downtown!

The restoration of this historically significant castle has been well done and the way you are guided through the various rooms and chambers very educational. A unique defensive castle and an intresting history make it well worth visiting and spending some time there.

An interesting and picturesque spot to visit. We were on a bit of a whistlestop tour and only stopped briefly, the view from the outside is probably the real money shot here. There was a very interesting background story, about a knight who was besieged in the castle but used a secret passage in the back to continue getting fresh... More

If you visit this castle after a visit to nearby Postojna Cave, you drive a twisty, narrow road to Predjama. There is a very small parking lot near the castle and you do not see the castle until you are almost upon it. But that first view is breathtaking since the castle is magically perched within the mountain wall. That... More

Part of a private tour, we got there on a drizzly day. Our tour guide gave us the history of the castle. Not the most comfortable place to live in, at that time. The surroundings and the view from the castle are well worth it. There is an exit thru the mountain, but you need a special guided tour for... More

We visited the castle after visiting the Postojna Caves and by this time I was quite tired, so didn't see all of the levels in this castle. It is spectacular, set into the side of a rock face and would have been very secure in its day. There are many different levels and some interesting wax figures and artifacts depicting... More
