I had no idea what to expect when booking a tour to the Predjama Castle. The word "castle" makes you envision a Disney castle (...which is in fact the Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria): turrets, drawbridge, majestically overlooking the realm once belonging to the caste... You do not expect half a castle sticking out of a gigantic cave! In the Himalayas,... More

We finally found this castle after the delightful drive through green countryside and little villages. The English pamphlet was great as a guide to the castle and what the rooms were etc. the views as you climb up each level were great. The little church in the village is quaint and the Lime tree is of great significance. This castle... More

I came here as part of a day trip that also went to Postojna. The guide was quite good, but there was little in the way of explanations to look at as we went around. This is one area where I feel museums in the UK have really improved, things are much more interactive. The setting at the mouth of... More

We loved this. The castle is amazingly interesting. When purchased as a combined ticket with the nearby cave it is almost free. There were other tourists here but it is so big that you don't feel overrun. Highly recommend. Tip. Get the audio guide. It is only 2 euro and it plays aloud, so you only need one for your... More

We almost didn't go as we are "castled" out. Our teenager stayed back in the room. He wished he had gone now. This is a very interesting castle as it is built into a cave system. The audioguide was definitely worth it. It explains how the castle was expanded, how they defended it, where the enemies found its weakness. Very... More

Predjama Castle was a surprise to us. When you approach it, it seems quite small but when you go inside, there are so many rooms, passages and stairs that it took us around 2 hours to see everything. It is really worth to take the audioguide, costs 2 euro extra, but you have a description of each room and a... More

Interesting castle a few kilometers Postojanska cave. Surrounding the castle excel as the castle itself. At first glance it does not seem to be somewhere in the vicinity could be a castle. But it's definitely worth a look.

Castle clings to mountain side. More to see than you may imagine. Some rooms being reconstructed. Joint ticket with Caves.

Everyone goes to the caves but a few miles up the road is Predjama Castle which was much quieter. From the outside it is incredibly beautiful. Inside is a different story - blood curdling tales of boiling oil etc, draughty and cold to live in - all great fun. Of course there are lots of viewpoints with wonderful views. Decent... More

We enjoyed a trip to Predjama castle including the tour of the caves under the castle. The castle is larger than it probably looks from the outside and is a glorious spot at the end of a valley. There are many room a open for a self guided visit several allowing spectacular views up the valley. The guided cave trip... More
