We arrived here late in the evening, after a visit at the Postojna caves and unfortunatly the castle was already closed. But we weren't too sorry because from the guides and the website we knew that the inside shouldn't be so great. The greatness of this place is the location. This castle that spread from the mountain is something not... More

This castle is not far from the popular Postojna Caves and is much cooler. The staff at the castle are very informative with excellent english. The castle itself is very cool, built inside the cliff face it utilizes the cave system behind/above/below it and is generally an interesting piece of Slovenian history. The coolest part however is the cave system... More

That castle is truly an amazing creation and hard to imagine, until you see it for yourself. The interior is quite impresive, but the exterior is the one that drops your jaw. There is a very interesting anecdote about the knight Erazem, who owned the castle. I'm sure it will amuse you, when you hear it.

You will never see anything like this again. An entire castle built into a cave by a 'robber baron' who held up here for over a year whilst under siege. He had a secret access via a steep staircase cut deep within the cave to the mountaintop which allowed him to fetch supplies from the little village close by. An... More

Picturesque from the outside and full of interesting displays/museum artifacts on the inside, a worthwhile place to visit. Can also go into the cave itself, but was not recommended for younger children. To save money, purchase a combined ticket with Poston Czve, which is 10 minutes down the road.

Very interesting castle but extremely cold. Would recommend giving it a miss in very heavy snow as difficult to get out

I have visited several times to take in the free view but on my last visit I paid the entrance fee to see the inside. The inside did not measure up the the free view on the outside. I would not make time to go inside but if you have time to burn or want to make a donation get... More

After seeing Postojna cave we drove to this near by unique castle. Well preserved, gives a visitor great feel and experience. In the last room there was a big surprise that left me with my mouth open. It was the prettiest Christmas nativity scene with the whole little village and animals and much more. It was so so precious. Even... More
