From the moment you arrive, it is an impressive sight! At the entrance you're handed a self tour handset that is very informative and easy to operate. The castle itself is quite large and with a few very steep stairways that will pose an issue for older and very young, but the views are breathtaking, and worth it. This castle... More

This was by far one of our favourite castles we have ever seen and one of the highlights of our holiday. It has a stunning setting that you would imagine only exists in a movie. Despite this it was surprising how little it is advertised compared to the nearby Postojna Caves. The castle is only a short 10 minute drive... More

This is a remarkable, quite small castle, built into a cave high up on an escarpment. Make sure you get an audio guide as it brings the castle to life. Most of the rooms are sparsely furnished, but the real pleasure is the architecture and the way the castle is built over the mouth of a huge cage. Exploration involves... More

A wonderful view, old arhitecture and deep caves under it . It is clean with nice staff. We havent been insude but I belive it is as interesting as from outside. Moreover, there is cave inder the the castle. It is part of the Postojna group caves and it does not cost so much to go in it .

A castle built into a wall - awesome. Very picturesque. Once inside, the audioguide does a good job explaining things. You follow the signs in a chronological order through the castle, for about an hour or so. Castle has been well maintained and setup for tourists. Problem I found was that there were so many people inside, it was hard... More

This castle is somehow built into the mountainside, leaving the attic a cave to climb into. We also joined the guided cave tour going from the base of the castle through some very interesting underground caves, some places you needed to climb ladders, and there were bats :-) All in all a very interesting and nice visit giving a glimpse...

Predjama castle is worth a visit for its special structure. Almost one quarter of the castle is built inside a cave and it is the biggest building of its type in the world. It's astounding to see not just how its inhabitants lived centuries ago but also how the builders managed to incorporate the cave into the castle, for example... More

The Predjama Castle tells an astonishing story in a very interesting way through the audio guide included in ticket price. You live through the different phases of the castle and learn a lot of life and the castle's destinies. One of the best visits on our two week tour in Slowenia and definitely the best guidance.
