This is a unique site to visit as it is a castle built half inside a cave. The castle itself is not that unique. I have visited several 100 across Europe and if it is a first visit to a castle, go for it. You will enjoy it. The tours are self led by audio devices in many languages.

This castle is well worth the ten minute drive and additional fee if you are visiting Postojna Caves. It is stunning and the aduioguide tour is interesting and informative. A real highlight of our trip. The small pub in the village serves simple but enjoyable food.

Even though it lacks interior decorating, the Castle has been one of my favorite places this entire Europe trip! It's absolutely stunning. Me and my friend went just after it had rained, so the surrounding trees were very green and Mist rolled over the valley. It was beautiful. My love for all things medieval was overwhelmed. I really recommend getting... More

A most beautiful castle set in a cliff face. Lots of rooms to go through. Beautiful country scenes from some of the rooms. Try to go early to avoid coachloads of tourisyts so that you can enjoy the castle better. A must if you are in Slovenia

Well worth a drive by if you are visiting the caves excursion nearby. Very interesting history of its construction and events that transpired therein. Not so grand inside.

If you're going to Postojna then get the combo ticket and go see the castle, in fact even if you don't go to Postojna then come see the castle anyway, it has a fantastic story and is so impressive. We almost skipped this attraction as the Trip Advisor reviews and the guidebook had been mostly luke warm about the audio... More

We included this amazing construction together with our visit to Postogna caves due to the convenience of the proximity of the two historical sites. The unique concept of utilizing an existing natural geological formation as an integral defence mechanism says much for the military engineering skills of a medieval period dominated by knights in armor and stone projectiles! The task... More

This castle doesn't puzzle as a building but as a cultural phenomena: how humans have tried to find ways to combine safety and comfort. That didn't work here either but something thrilling for us to visit was created

The only castle in the world built inside a cave. And a huge cave at that, both tall and deep. The outside walls are man made but inside the castle many of the rooms are fashioned within the contours of the cave. Fascinating. Well worth a visit.
