About

It is listed among the Guinness World Records as the largest cave castle in the world. Check the timetable of visits by months.

When visiting the Caves, if a combo tour is available to the Castle, take it. This probably would not warrant a trip on it's own from Koper, but when so close- GO. We did not even go for the full tour inside. Free to walk up and view the entrance way. Cruise ship in town and it was too busy for us so we enjoyed the view from outside and felt it was worth the trip from the caves.

Worthwhile combined tour of castle and cave.
Oct 2021
We purchased the combined ticket ($83 for 2 adults) and took the 10 AM Postojna Cave tour before visiting this castle. After paying an attendant 5 Euro for parking, we used the clean restrooms, then followed temporary signs along the back lawn to the entrance; the normal road was under repair. We were provided an audio guide and followed the wall numbers for specific information on each of the rooms encountered. This is a realistic structure remaining in its original 15th C form, somewhat cold and forbidding and totally built for defensive purposes where the owners could even retreat to an outfitted cave.
This was a very worthwhile combined tour.

No visit to the Postojna Caves park is complete without the castle. The setting is as impressive as the castle itself. There’s very limited parking space, so if you buy the combo ticket, you can leave your car at the caves and take the shuttle bus that leaves every 30 minutes.

Be prepared to climb up and down constantly; strollers and wheelchairs are impossible. The audio guide is very helpful to understand the history and lore of the castle; the system is very friendly since you don’t have to tap a number or scan a code; you just approach your device to each room sign.

Don’t skip the cave part of the castle; it’s worth the climb.

Spectacular
Sep 2021 • Couples
Went here yesterday after having visited the Postojna caves. Spectacular frontage. Staff provide you with a small machine which you either put in a number as you arrive at the relevant number fixed on a wall, or scan a bar, code next to most ofthese numbers. This gives you a verbal history of all of the rooms in your chosen language. Only takes about an hour to walk around but well worth the visit.

Impressive Castle
Sep 2021 • Couples
My expectations for this castle were pretty low but I was very impressed. We used the audio guides which worked out well - very informative and interesting. We spent about an hour here and really enjoyed it.

There’s a sign shortly after where you purchase tickets that says to wait for tour guide and that guided tours are required. Ignore the signs - tours aren’t required and aren’t needed (IMO).

Marvelous and Historic Castle in Slovenia

My wife and I were vacationing in the area and we visited this cave based on a recommendation from friends. Wow, was this interesting and historic. Just an incredible castle to visit - beyond description. This is an absolute must see if you are in the area!

A must visit in a magical place
Nov 2019 • Family
Predjama Castle, located a short distance drive from the Postojna Cave.
The castle is located in the mountains in a quiet and calm place.
It is built inside the mountain and that is what is special about it.
If you have time, I recommend taking a tour inside the castle.
Below the castle, there is another cave, very beautiful.
My recommendation, if you have visited Postojna Cave, is unnecessary to enter this cave.
There are not many parking spaces so you should arrive early

Slovenian gem of castles
Sep 2020
A castle is build into a cave so his arhitecture is stunning. With the help of audio guide you get much better insight of how life was in the castle at that time. You can also drink a beer or have a nice lounch with the view on the castle. If you make arrangements with the tour guides in advance, you can also see the cave and meet the mysterious creatures living there :)

Worth the drive from Bled
Aug 2020 • Couples
We made the drive here from Bled and man o man it is truly amazing!!!! Such a beautiful castle constructed using the natural walls of the cave, it makes me wonder if we’ve advanced our building techniques that much... simply stunning!
I’m happy to say, after seeing it on tv and in movies it still managed to live up to the hype.
There’s plenty of free parking, and entry is about €15 each. Well worth it in my book! The free audio guides give you ample information about the rooms and their uses as well as the history of the castle. Take an afternoon and see one of Slovenia’s greatest attractions!
