After seeing Postojna cave we drove to this near by unique castle. Well preserved, gives a visitor great feel and experience. In the last room there was a big surprise that left me with my mouth open. It was the prettiest Christmas nativity scene with the whole little village and animals and much more. It was so so precious. Even... More

We visited the castle after visiting the Postojna Caves and by this time we were quite tired, but we see all of the levels in this castle and the cave behind. There is breathtaking view from the top of the castle.

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.
