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...more
I went early in the morning to avoid the traffic and the crowds. Parking is free.
It was a foggy morning and I was the only person there. I wandered around the grounds and admired the structure built in to the rock face.
After visiting the Postojna Caves I thought we would be disappointed but certainly not. The Predjama Castle is approx. 7km from the caves and well worth a visit. It is very unusual as the castle goes into the mountain. Outside it looks strange but once...More
I love castles and this was really an experience and a half! Never have I seen such a structure. This was the best castle I visited in Slovenia.
No guided tour but audio guides what suited me very well. Absolutely no rush, everything could be...More
This a singular castle. The castle is built inside of a cave and it has a lot of stories from their owners. Is connected to a cave system that allows the owner to smuggle food and survive during long sieges.
Impressive castle build into the rocks supported with service caves which , convert this castle to a place that was almost impossible to overcome.
Audio guidance appliances provided and it is highly recommended.
Very humid, would imagine that during busy summertime ,it can...More
If you’ve seen Rick Steve’s shows, he said this wasn’t a necessity to go into this castle but while I LOVE Rick Steve’s and usually agree, I totally disagree with that. This is a must see inside! It’s €8,50 per adult just for the castle...More
We had a wonderful morning exploring this fascinating and geographically amazing castle. The recorded commentary was succinct and interesting. We had booked to stay at Guesthouse Pozar, just a short stroll from the castle, which was brilliant as we were able to visit first thing...More

There are a lot of stairs...More

I really reccomend to visit both attractions. It takes 1,5 hour for Postojna Cave and about an hour for Predjama Castle. The distance between them is 9 km or about 10 minutes by car. If you really hurry - in september is still possible to visit Cave under Predjama Castle. It is the second largest show cave in Slovenia, very interesting and it is located as its name shows :-) But if possible - take your time and enjoy the whole day in Postojna Cave Park. Welcome!
