Create an itinerary including Predjama Castle
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.

  • The Castle is built into the middle of a 400 foot high cliff. The audio guide is very interesting. Restaurants & toilets on site. Combined ticket, Cave & Castle €40/person

  • Very cool. I have never seen anything similar before. Definitely worth a visit. Parking costs 5 Euro close to the castle.. There is also a shuttle from the cave, which costs 1 Euro per person.

  • Unique castle built into a cave. Beautiful from the outside, with an interesting audio guided tour inside, extending into the caves behind it. Definitely worth a visit combined with Postojna Cave...

  • It is a beautiful castle with a beautiful setting. Every thing about it is beautiful. We had the English commentary device to listen to and it was very interesting. We spent a couple of hours going around it. Highly recommended
  • A beautiful castle, inside and out. Far enough from the city to get away and close enough that it doesn't require a long drive. Fantastic setting for all kinds of photo opportunities too.
  • Incredible!! For those who like historical places and medieval stuff, this place offer all of this! We were surprised by the place and the high level of preservation shown. Even the kids - that were naturally skeptical of the place - in the end had so much fun and appreciated very much the place, with the support of the audio guide!
  • Looks amazing from the outside and quite interesting from the inside. The tour inside is not too long, but you can see how you can build together a cave and a castle. Unique.
  • A special and unique castle. At least 90 minutes should be devoted to the tour. It is advisable to rent audio headphones for interesting explanations of the history of the castle.
