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.

Located in the true heart of a mountain, this was an amazing trip. The ride up there was great, you see a lot of water while you drive up and when you get up there its just beautiful castle located in the rocks. Its the only one I have seen so far that is just built into the rocks. There is a small enterence fee of about 11 euros. There was a small cafe close by as well. A lot of locals live around this area, and they will drive a little faster than you but dont let that intimidate you on the road. Must visit.

Predjama Castle was featured on Ghost Hunters International. I won't reveal the story of how the owner met his demise. You'll have to hear it yourself!
Predjama is a good stop to add with Postojna or Lipica. Day tours to all 3 places are available from Ljubljana.
Some good photo ops here inside and outside. There is a fee to go inside and some stair climbing.
Reading about the attraction before you see it is always helpful.

This place was really cool. I don't really care if the history surrounding it is a bit apocryphal, this place was straight out of a fairy tale. So unlike any other castle I have visited, this building is in wonderful shape (renovated extensively, of course), but that adds to the excitement. The building is presented to you in its full drama.

I loved this castle, we were in side for more than one hour imagining all the things that happen there, and we had a great time, our expectation were exceeded.

I love the outside view of the castle, the caves inside and the story and the intrigues surrounding the castle. I didn't like the inside, nothing special, and our tour guide was very uninterested and we had very "by-the-book" guiding - never asked us if we have any questions etc. Had a feeling she just wants to get rid of us as soon as possible. Don't think it's worth the entrance fee.
