A lovely and interesting castle. We visited as part of our cave tour ticket and it was really nice. Unlike other refurbished castles in Slovenia, this one felt more authentic. There were no rooms converted into shops, just an interesting historical tour around the castle...More

Definitely worth the stop! I did not go inside as not sure it was worth it for the price, but the castle from the outside is beautiful! There's only the castle and a couple of shops around, so you don't need a lot of time!

Hidden away in the Slovenian countryside this castle is worth a passing visit, especially if you started your day at the stunning caves nearby. But this no Neuschwanstein. The displays are okay, the views are okay, but this really is nothing to get excited about.

You don't really expect to see much more than a typical castle, but this place is worth the visit. The audio tour gives you just the right amount of info, the castle itself is very well maintained, and the topography of the place is unique.

This is our second visit to Predjama Castle. It is truly unique from other castles we have seen throughout Europe; and as family lives nearby this is easy for us to stop at when we are there... The audio headphones are a must so that...More

Definitely worth a stop. Really incredible to see how the castle is built into the cave. The lower cave is only open during the summer months due to bats but the castle alone is worth a visit. Very informative audio tour included in the 12...More

My favorite part of the castle is actually looking at it from the outside. The castle is build into the rocks on a cliff so it is very dramatic looking. The audio tour was well done and provided interesting information. It was especially neat to...More
