Predjama Castle, Postojna

4.6
Perched on a high, rocky cliff for over 700 years, the unconquerable four levels of Predjama Castle were built within a cave mouth. Cross a drawbridge over a rushing river and visit the restored living quarters, chapel, and dungeon to get an idea of how people once lived here. The castle's most famous resident and the subject of many legends was Erazem Lueger, a 15th-century knight who rebelled against the Austrian emperor. See his hiding place called Erazem's Nook and ascend along Erazem's Tunnel. Do not miss the 16th-century treasure chest uncovered in the cellar in 1991. An observation post offers a panoramic view of the surrounding landscape. The castle entered the Guinness Book of Records as the biggest cave castle in the world.

  • With surprise with believed our eyes ... a castle nestled in the rock of ages ... and visit it inside with the translator you seem to live in that time ... and more you used is more the wonder grew .... and the surreal and see and hear the screams from torture chamber.

  • Impressive castle in the rocks. With the free audio guide a fun and interesting route through this castle. You can pay by debit card or credit card without problem. Highly recommended! In the castle is not a toilet. Outside at the small car park very good warm public toilets (pleasant if it is cold outside)

  • Wow just Wow! We visited during the shoulder season and I'd highly recommend making this trip during the "off season." It wasn't crowded at all. The audio tour is really interesting. One of the cooler castles I've been in.
  • My absolute favourite castle ever. The tour is worth it, and the audio guide is actually interesting. Don't skip the first 4 entries as it gives a lot of background that will make the rest of the tour more interesting. Definitely worth the detour if you are at postojna caves, I actually liked the castle more than the caves.
  • It's quite big castle when come close.. quite amazing but the entrance fee is way too high .It should jot be that high.. if they want people to go inside to get some money ..it's better to charge only something like 5 € is enough .If cheaper I 'll defenitely go inside.
  • Amazing castle with 35.70€ u can get the ticket for the cave and also the castle with the audio guide free. Interesting and stranger is a real natural beauty! From the first of May u can also visit the cave under the castle that are one of the longer in Slovenia.
  • Amazing experience and above all you get to visit on your own without a guide. Small parking though. We bought the online combo ticket including the postojna cave and I strongly recommend booking it online as the ticket queues were taking forever
