Never thought from the outside that it's so big in the inside

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...

Really interesting castle built halfway in the cliff face. We had a bit of a rushed visit due to the traffic getting out of Bled and we were on a combined tour of the castle and caves so had to get to the caves for a fixed time. However, we had a guided tour of the castle which was very... More

A beautiful castle and well worth a visit. The audio tour is comprehensive and very interesting although I admit that I got a bit distracted and skipped a couple of numbers! There is plenty to look at anyway and great views. I'd highly recommend it if you are in the area.

Visiting castles is one of my favorite things, and I love castles in caves, so when I saw we were driving by this one, I had to stop. Walking up its very cool looking- perched up in the cliff with the caves above and below. But inside- meh. First of all, admission is pricey and only comes with audio guides... More

SabinaPJ, Public Relations Manager at Predjama Castle, responded to this review

Dear emathews2004, many thanks for sharing your opinion with us, however, we are unable to agree with it completely. Predjama Castle is a medieval cave castle, which means that it was fundamentally built as a refuge and defence castle, where safety was significantly more important than comfort. Tours of the castle conducted by means of audio guides, which are available... More
