+ Historical place between nice landscape. Impressive that walls are part of cave. When you arrive you get audio guide which tells a lot about history of castle, about many different owners trough history. - Very difficult to get there by public transport. We arrived to Postojna by bus from Ljubljana, but from there there's no bus and even no... More

I have visited so many castles on Europe but this one is my favorite. The history is amazing, if you are really i interested on it, rent an audio-tour. The architecture is so intelligence and creativite, and you will understand it more with the audio-tour or books. The view from outside the castle, from inside and from the top are... More

We were driving from Ljubljana to Rovinj via the Karst region. We planned on stopping at the Skojcan Caves on our way and when we realized that Predjama Castle was basically right on the route, we decided to take a chance. We didn't find the castle interior to be boring. It didn't have anything from the castle's period inside, just... More

I saw a photo of this castle online and just knew I had to go there. We had a combination ticket with the Postojna Caves, so it was a very entertaining afternoon. The facade of the castle is more impressive than the interior but there are a few quirky things to see inside. Worth the 3 hours drive from Venice.

What an amazing place to visit. The history and stories, not to mention the breathtaking views both on the way there and once you reach the castle/cave. This is in the top 10 of favourite places in the world visited for me.

This castle is just as beatiful and interesting as the pictures would lead you to believe. Built into the mountain walls above an underground stream, it's full of history and legend (including the story of the knight who died in the toilet). A short distance outside of Postojna, this is a great activity for all the family- the audio tour... More

They started a new audio tour this summer and it was fantastic. Room by room you get the history of this castle including colorful accounts of it resisting attacks. This was the most castle fun we had in a 2 week trip to Croatia and Slovenia.

We read about this castle in a travel book. Since we were roadtripping through Slovenia, I insisted on going here. It's supposed to be one of only few castles in the world left, made out of a rock/mountain. The sight is so pretty. When you walk towards the castle you can totally imagine how they would have lived there in... More

This magical Castle is built into the rock of the overhanging mountain and was built to last ! It saw some action in its time and was besieged back in 1484 which saw the demise of Erazem of Predjama , the local Robber Baron of the day who is buried out the front. We got there too early to get... More

Not the usual castle adorned with riches and paintings. Purely a castle meant for defense and engulfed in the mountain rock . Never seen anything like it.
