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.

You will never see anything like this again. An entire castle built into a cave by a 'robber baron' who held up here for over a year whilst under siege. He had a secret access via a steep staircase cut deep within the cave to the mountaintop which allowed him to fetch supplies from the little village close by. An... More

Picturesque from the outside and full of interesting displays/museum artifacts on the inside, a worthwhile place to visit. Can also go into the cave itself, but was not recommended for younger children. To save money, purchase a combined ticket with Poston Czve, which is 10 minutes down the road.

Very interesting castle but extremely cold. Would recommend giving it a miss in very heavy snow as difficult to get out

I have visited several times to take in the free view but on my last visit I paid the entrance fee to see the inside. The inside did not measure up the the free view on the outside. I would not make time to go inside but if you have time to burn or want to make a donation get... More

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
