Impressive looking castle! The ticket to enter was included with our day trip so we did it. However, I do agree with everyone saying that the main attraction is the outside. It's very fairlytale-ish and scenic. i would highly recommend visiting- if only to see the outside.

We expected to see knights inside with their outfits and swords but unfortunately the castle is very poor inside without interesting views to see . The only benefit is to see the castle from the outside and it is free . We bought a tickets combined with Postojna cave so I don't know how much it cost but in any... More

This is a must visit after Postojna Caves. I wouldn't spend any time inside because the interior is very simple and nothing jaw dropping. The architecture and how the castle was built (took 400 years to complete) and the photo opp from the outside is definitely a must. Inside, i would skip it. if you must go in, it shouldn't... More

Different from all castles I have ever visited - it is like a part of the rock. Inside it is like a museum with some wax figures...But, what I really liked is the cave under/around it. It is dark, and looks more wild than other "caves for tourists" and you can see small bats hanging and flying around.... :) It... More

We were visiting Slovenia and decided to stop at this Castle for a couple of hours.We weren't sorry for this decision . Very fascinating is this Castles position in the mountain . Inside it is not a big deal , but got some interesting spots. If you are around totally worth spending a couple of hours at this place.

Near Postojna Cave. Picture opportunity of castle at mountain side and cave entrance. But did not enter castle for tour. From pictures, interior looked simple and decided to save money for other palaces and churches in Italy.

If you've traveled in Europe at all… you've probably had a castle visit or two or twenty. This is generally the same concept. Rocks, bricks, wood, lookouts, stairs, etc. BUT… this one is built INTO the side of the cave system of the mountain. It's an amazing use of natural protection, water resources, and defendable terrain. Go with enough time... More

Didn't know quite what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised. Very interesting castle, built into the rock. Our excellent guide Vanna informed and entertained the 40 strong group with ease, and moved the group around without making us feel rushed. No one minds if you take photos here, despite it being the same management as the Postojna Caves.

The inner castle it self is not so impressive, thus I`ve seen other more beautifull, but it's amazing how the construction was made within the mountain. If you are there, it worths your visit.

Castle is built into rock face under a cave which makes it very interesting as is the tale of the Slovenian Robin Hood who lived here. Will only take you a couple of hours to go around
