Interesting history to the place as well. The only downside to the site is its popularity, which means large numbers of people in a relatively small space, and the slightly touristy feel. But you won't see anywhere else quite like it in Europe, so it's definitely worth the visit.

Amazing castle and a unique combination of nature and human creation. We spent almost two hours exploring the castle and listening to the interesting explanations.

This suffers from the same commercialism as Postojne and is linked commercially but fortunately not so many visitors bother to come. You have to spend a while deciding whether you want a ticket linked to the torture museum etc etc . Go early and beat the crowds. A fascinating castle built at the entrance to a cave system. An electronic... More

A really cool castle that would be interesting for its architecture even if it weren't on a rock face. The castle was built along the caves and some rooms lead into it. Very smart fortification. The parking lot is pretty tiny and there isn't much to see inside. I'd suggest stopping by for pictures and heading to the nearby caves... More

Cut into a rock, up above the ground this castle used to shelter a Slovenian knight, Arasmus who was considered the local robin hood. While the outer facade is all built the inside walls are part of a huge cave, and the way they intersect is what's so exquisite about this place. Add a torture chamber, and some odd tunnels... More

This castle is spectacular, built into the side of a cave. It's bigger than life, you won't believe it unless you see it. You get to walk all through it and I would recommend you do so. It's amazing!

The medieval castle is in a cave, and surrounded by nice sceneries. The history and stories of people living there in the past are well worth listening to. I did not enter the castle, and am pretty sure that the wheelchair accessibility in there is far from outstanding (lots of stairs etc.), but I could see people walking around in... More
