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.

  • Very private, no we enter, we took photos of the outside since there are few castles built partly in a cave.

  • Beautiful ... When you arrive you are presented in front of this magnificent Castle, stunning views and within is wonderful, with the audioguide you can turn it quietly without haste and admire its beauty!!

  • I find this castle very interesting from the outside, but not that much from the inside. It was not easy to get there. Me and my friend had to take a taxi from Postojna cave (we visited it first), tax...  more »

  • The castle looks great from the outside. Included in your ticket price is an audio guide, the guide was very well spoken and always provided interesting information. None of the audio clips were more than about 1.5 minutes so it's easy to listen to them. One thing that should be noted is that there are many stairs to climb inside the castle, some of which are very steep and narrow so it may not be the best for people who aren't too good on their feet. Otherwise I would definitely recommend going there as it is a very unique castle and you get a lot of interesting information.
  • Our family had a wonderful time at Predjama Castle. The audio tour component was very interesting even to my 10 year old son. The only downside was if you arrive between 14-1600 there will not be any parking on a Sat. We highly recommend this place to visit!
  • Castle in the cave. Very beautiful and nice place for day trip. For families or just for one person. Ever year you can find here knights turnaments, many many tourists and so more. Place is a tourist attraction, so the prices are related to this and are very high. Castle has nice story.
  • Really cool and unique castle - Game of Thrones vibes guaranteed. There's much more to see inside than you would initially think. Definitely worth visiting, I enjoyed it a lot.
  • Have a wonderful time exploring this castle. A lot of rooms inside cave that can not imagine how it had been created in the past.
