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.

predjama castle is a very romantic place specially in the early morning and early evening when the most day and hour tourists are gone. during daytime is castle is overflooded by people. the restaurant in front of the castle offers good and expensive food and drinks, the souvenier shop at the entrance of the castle has also horrible prices.

It is something to see in Slovenia. The position of the castle, as a doorman of the cave behind is something, that I did not see anywhere else in the world. It is integrated with the cave, so some rooms inside have one or two walls of a intact stone, which is a part of the hill. There is also a hidden passage on the other side of the hill, which was used during the siege in medieval times, but today what is left is only a legend. A must ig you are passing Slovenia!

We loved this castle. I haven't been to many castles, but this was the best one because its so pretty, in a beautiful location, but the use of the caves make it fascinating. There is a cute little village and restaurant to enjoy as well. Don't skip it if you go to see the caves.

The Predjama Castle is approx 10km away from the Postojna Caves. Both sites can be seen in a half day. If you are going into the caves then it may be worth buying the pass that allows access into the castle as well. Unless you are someone who enjoys reading about specific items of furniture and a few stories of life in the castle, it may not be the most exciting attractions. The true value of the site are pictures of the castle built into the side of the mountain, views from the terrace in the castle, and an entrance into a cave from the castle itself. If you don't want to spend the money, you can get great pictures of the castle without having to pay for the attraction. Good for teenagers and adults, but not too exciting for kids inside the castle itself.

Driving along the windy narrow road brings you to this spectacular castle built into the mountain. We did not manage to go inside as we were limited for time, however just being able to admire this amazing structure was enough for us. I have not seen anything like it! Apparently each year the town holds a festival which the local people dress up in the period attire and act out the battles fought and day to day living. Definitely a must to add to your list of things to see in Slovenia
