Amazing place

Close by Posjama caves (take the free shuttle bus), this is the largest castle in the world built into a cave. Good audio guide.

The visit to this castle was a part of one day tour I book from Roundabout. It took about 45 minutes drive from Ljubjana. The Castle view was so beautiful. It is built at a cave in a stone hill. There are 25 rooms inside. A lot of history about the person who built it. But not so many artefacs... More

Loved this castle - audio tour was included in the price and it was well set out and informative Really atmospheric and we bought a combined ticket with the caves which was great value We got there at 9am and there were few other tourists - could be tricky with hoards of tourists as steps are narrow and slippery

Predjama castle is certainly nothing like any other castle you might visit. It is amazing how the castle has grown into the caves and around the mountain and from the stone. It is not a large castle but is very interesting.

This is a real castle, half hidden in a cave and between rocks. People make thousands of photos near the building. Inside is not what they expect under influence of princesses and their furniture. Life on castles was difficult and even rude. No air condition, no polished bathrooms, no soft beds. Inner image is stone and many steps, sometimes too... More

There are hundreds of castles around, what makes this one different, is its location, inside a cave. Very well laid out. Be warned lots of stairs. A pity about everything looking new, I understand things need to be repaired or replaced, but the should try age it to fit in with the rest.

One of the highlights of our trip. A very interesting and impressive place. The audio guide was extremely helpful. Our two teenage kids were very excited to use the guide and see all the exhibits. Highly recommended !

Castle has a story and looks amazing from outside. Inside I miss more content. Worth visiting during knight games in front, only issue is parking.

There are electronic guides in lots of languages, so you will surly find one you know. This enhances the experience and makes the tour more interesting also for the kids. Beautiful and interesting. Buy a ticket together with the nearby and wonderful Predjama cave. There are free shuttles between the two every hour in the afternoon.

Predjama castle is unique as it is built in the rocks, inside it looks very natural, you can see the difference between the castle and the rock and also get to explore the cave hidden inside. They also provided a free audio guide in English, giving us lots of information of the heritage of the castle.
