If you stop at the caves, try to purchase a combo entrance so you can take advantage of the free shuttle bus. This castle is built right into a rock face. For 2 Euros, you can rent an audio guide that is a must. Really engaging history and an amazing piece of human engineering and ingenuity!

This castle is so picturesque and dramatic perched amongst the caves. The history is amazing and the different ages of development fascinating. Well worth the price

Expecting to be slightly underwhelmed, we were amazed by how this thing was literally stuck on a rock face. I would recommend paying extra for the audio tour. We didn't and there is next to no information to read when inside and the leaflet is pretty scant too.

I heard that this castle was an amazing site with the most interesting history. I was able to take pictures right before dusk. Although the pictures came out alright, I would have loved to being able to see inside he castle. For that reason, I rate it 4stars. There were only one or two people walking on the streets and...

The castle in itself is very interesting as it is build in the mountain. The views are amazing. The tour guide was also very informative. Worth a visit

This is of course another very famous tourist site in Solvenia. It is certainly well worth a visit although the best part is certainly the view from outside the castle or the view of the valley from inside the castle. The inside of the castle itself is rather disappointing. The best bit about the inside is the view out over... More

This was a castle that gave a nice feeling and a glims of history. Great! The surroundings were nice and it gave the place a more real feeling. Not so much turism stuff and a lot to se and discover in the castle. Well recommended!

Very nice castle. You should stop here when you are close. Try the caves below the castle also. Only short tour (30mins) but worth to see it. Try to visit Predjama castle in the morning. You will probably avoid the crowds usually coming from Postojna caves in the afternoon.

Uniqueness of that place is its location - looks like "cover" for cave under it. Beautiful nature around, great beer in near restaurant. Walking in the castle without guide is a big plus, anyway written guide is available in many languages and is detail. Making photos of visitors at the entrance is good idea (you can buy your photo near... More
