Predjama Castle, Postojna

(4.5/5 based on 1,800+ reviews on the web)
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. Work out when and for how long to visit Predjama Castle and other Postojna attractions using our handy Postojna family vacation planner.

  • The castle is well worth a visit! With the admission, you get an audio guide, which contains interesting information about the Castle. The whole facility is beautiful and well renovated. The view is great!

  • The location is beautiful and the castle is wonderful. You can visit this place if you're passing through or if you visit the Postojna Cave (about 10 Km). In this place there are natural caves that you can visit, but the most beautiful is certainly the Castle nestled in the rock.

  • Beautiful 13th century castle built into the cliff face. Medieval times were quite something. Very cold and cruel. Don't forget to ring the wish bell. Scenery is stunning
  • Definetly the most beautiful castle i've ever seen... you will get an audio guide at the entrance and this one explains every single room in this castle... definetly worth it!
  • Nice place, smaller as looks on pictures but combined with Postojna cave enough for day trip
  • Lovely castle and cave! The audioguide gives good info on a lot of different aspects of castle life and it's history. Well worth a visit.
  • Very impressive castle in a beautiful karst cave. The price includes an audio-guide, which is well structured and informative. My highlight was the hidden small castle behind the castle with Erazem's secret passageway. The only downer was that there are no public buses running from Postojna to Predjama Grad, so biking, hitchhiking or a private cab are the only options if you're not on your own four wheels.
