The castle is built into the rocks so it is quite impressive seen from the valley , yet inside it has been completely rebuilt and the furniture is quite basic. Not much to see inside

Wow! We did the castle tour with English audio guide and we were very entertained! Great story and history. This castle was on the top ten list of castles to see and I would definately agree! Get the audio guide! Worth the money.

This is a highlight of a trip, we've toured many places in Europe, but we still talk about "pajama castle". This was a great treat. Yep, not easy to get to, but GPS works fantastic. We did have to pay with cash- for all, so don't forget your euros. The restaurant was closed that day - April 2014- we're a... More

When we visited Postojna Cave we bought tickets cave+castle and we saved few euros. Castle is built in the mountain and there is a secret path from castle throught the mountain to the other side of mountain. Castle is really lovely.

The ride to the castle isn't fun if you're not fond of curvy, hilly roads, but it is worth it. The walk through the castle can actually take an hour even without a guide, so set some time aside for it. The staff is nice, service minded, and ready to answer any weird questions one might come with.

We arrived here late in the evening, after a visit at the Postojna caves and unfortunatly the castle was already closed. But we weren't too sorry because from the guides and the website we knew that the inside shouldn't be so great. The greatness of this place is the location. This castle that spread from the mountain is something not... More

This castle is not far from the popular Postojna Caves and is much cooler. The staff at the castle are very informative with excellent english. The castle itself is very cool, built inside the cliff face it utilizes the cave system behind/above/below it and is generally an interesting piece of Slovenian history. The coolest part however is the cave system... More

That castle is truly an amazing creation and hard to imagine, until you see it for yourself. The interior is quite impresive, but the exterior is the one that drops your jaw. There is a very interesting anecdote about the knight Erazem, who owned the castle. I'm sure it will amuse you, when you hear it.
