Extraordinary castle in the rock face

Great to explore, unique structure. It goes on and on deep into the caves within the rocks. Nothing to dislike about this place!

This is one of the few castles built in a cave which is prob the most interesting aspect. The castle does not offer much inside and you should be done within an hour. Still worth a visit if you are in the area and have some time to spare.

Ancient fortress intact and well preserved. A lot of ups and downs stairs until you reach a cave, known length of 13 km (No entrance to the cave).There is reconstructions of life in different periods, clothing, furniture and items of everyday. Outside there are sometimes the reconstruction of the battle knights

If you are in the area, it is definitely worth a visit to go and see this amazing castle built into the cliff face. The photos don't really do it justice as you don't get the perspective of the castle against the stone behind, nor of the drop below. Definitely recommended to visit, didn't go in due to feedback from... More

Really nice place to spend a hour. Beautiful surroundings and a lot to see inside. A bit hard if you are old or can't walk stairs very well.

The castle is very nice due to its construction in rock. The audio guide was helpful and entertaining. The cave below the castle was interesting too. Everything was fine until we have reached the exit. There, on a big board we saw printed photos of each of us entering the castle. No prices were displayed so we have assumed that... More

Only a short 1 hour drive from Ljubljana. The view of the castle you can get for free, I wouldn't bother paying the money to go in. There's nothing special inside apart from some very small information sections and a few cueing platforms. Seriously, go see it just for the unique exterior and surroundings.

If you can only see 3 castles in Europe, this should be one of them! It is a very cool looking castle, as you can see from the pix. But what sets this one apart is the condition, which has been restored to medieval times, and the features, which include torture chambers, secret passages, nuder holes, drawbridges, caves, etc. This...

We only viewed this castle from the outside. Decided not to tour the inside as we had spent hours at the Postonja Cave and on our way to Piran to catch the sunset. It is quite amazing how a castle is built into a cave though. Parking can be quite a problem though.

This castle is a lot different from most perched up on a cliff face in front of the mouth of a huge cave. The attractions around Postojna are linked and so a wide range of tickets are available depending on what you want to do and how much time you have. The castle is also away from the motorway and...
