Owner description: 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, for more than 800 years. It is listed among the Guinness World Records as the largest cave castle in the world. Check the timetable of visits by months.

Drove about 200 km from Ptuj to check this castle. I though: ok, one more. But that was a valid experience. The castle is built in the rock. Lots of history to make your imagination run free. One wonders how was it possible to live there, especially under a siege that took one year. Water collection from the rocks simply amazing. Outside good opportunities for a descent meal. Must do type thing.

Not far from Ljubljana and well worth a visit.
You need to be stable on your legs and I would suggest good shoes as you are required to climb some steep and slippy steps!
Go and visit!

If you are ever in the area do not miss visiting this castle. It is impressive how they build this castle in that cave.

Like many Americans, our lack of castles at home makes them a draw for us when traveling around Europe. As a result we have been fortunate to visit castles in the UK, Belgium, France, Germany, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Spain, and Italy. This means that when we visit a new country, we tend to be a bit picky, looking for something that is a bit unique. And Predjama definitely fills that description! All you have to do is look at the front and you instantly think why one would even THINK to attack this fortress without artillery! Very appreciative of the staff when we were there off-season as they recommended we actually leave the castle to first go to the caves at Postojna and THEN come back to the castle to make the best of our time available. Bottom line, though, if you have time, a visit inside is definitely worth it, with a good display of period items in a truly unique setting - you'll never find another castle like it!

Slovenia saddly does not have a lot of special castles, but the ones that are really stand out. There is so much history in this castle, from the Erazem legend to ghost hunters (who talk in English to a 15th century Slovenian ghost) the castle is really amazing. The cave behing it is actually climable and visiting the top of the mountain is even more amazing. However the only bad part on my tour was that I was with a group of 100 people so they could not visit the inside due to time restrictions.
