How important can safety be over comfort you will realise only if you be in this castle. It is amazing to build a castle up in the caves. And even more amazing to know that people lived over there.

It is well worth the effort of visiting the Castle on the trip to Postojna Cave. It is an interesting place and has some interesting stories - especially how Erazmus of Predjama met his end. There are a lot of steps to negotiate and the tour takes about 40 mins.

The castle itself is not rich decorated , but is set to offer a good idea of what was the life in there in old times. What makes it worth the visit, in my opinion , is that it's a castle built in an ingenious way in the rock and part in a cave. that makes it a very different... More

We visited this interesting cave/castle before touring the disappointing caverns at Postojna. We greatly enjoyed the audio led tour around this impressive structure set in the caves of this huge escarpment. The audio tour is well written, well marked in the castle and illuminating. It brought the history to life for us. Allow an hour plus time to eat or... More

If you visit Slovenia, this castle is a must see. Very unique, a castle perched on its cliff. I've been to Neuschwanstein castle, but Predjama castle, for me, is more unique and beautiful.

It is one of the best castle views I have ever seen. Visiting the castle you can feel the time of knight Erazem of Predjama and amazing story of his life.

This is just another 'jaw-dropping' site in Slovenia to visit. We loved the country and the Castle is well worth a visit. Easily accessible and well worth an hour or so to wander through its halls and rooms. Don't miss the fatal toilet. Our wonderful guide from Slovenia Explorer spoke excellent English... was knowledgeable about the Castle... shared the experience... More

It should be enough that you get to see the last extant castle built into a cave, or literally fell the spirits around you, or the other worldly aesthetic of the whole scene, but if you are English speaking and get the adorable, well read, history buff vanya you are in for a treat. She adds lore, witches, stories and... More

Absolutely must see in Slovenia. Several kilometers away from famous Postojna cave, this medieval castle is just a pure jewel. The story around it, the layout of the rooms for you to visit- all is just perfect. Beautiful place.

About 1km from the caves - entrance fee is part of the cave tour. Extremely old site and most unusual as it is built into the caves. Quite a lot of stairs but well worth the climb. Views from the castle are breathtaking.
