Owner description: Predjama Castle is situated in the middle of a towering cliff, a mere 9 km from Postojna Cave. Picturesque, magnificent, defiant, mysterious and impregnable, it has been dominating the surrounding area, perched high up in the 123-metre high cliff, for more than 800 years. It is listed among the Guinness World Records as the largest cave castle in the world. Check the timetable of visits by months.

“Love this Castle”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

This castle is awesome. I can spend hours walking around it and exploring. I have been twice and it doesn't seem crowded so you can take your time and not feel rushed. The castle was featured on the Sci Fi Network's Ghost Hunters International.

“One if the coolest castles I have ever seen”
Reviewed July 22, 2012 via mobile

A castle in a cave. Should I say more? It was very interesting inside too. There were only a few people so we had the freedom to explore on our own. At the end we had some questions and the lady at the entrance was more than happy to tell us stories and answer our questions based on research the have made. A must see in slovenia. Worth any detour.

Truly amazing castle! It's very unusual as it's a part of the rock and cave behind it. Actually, a part of the castle is the cave! So surpring. I loved it!

“Very unusual and interesting castle”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

It starts off quite ordinary but as you explore deeper into the castle and go up to the upper levels it just gets better and better. Highly recommended. You can get a discounted ticket for both this and Postojna Caves.

“Very nice!”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

On our way to Croatia, form Lake Bled, we stopped at Predjama Castle. We didn't enter to the castle but we took a lot of great pictures from outside the castle. The castle is constructed into a rock and this makes it very interesting. It was a great half an hour stop!
