Predjama Castle, Postojna

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.

  • Visited on a morning when the weather perfectly fit in the cleverly concoed tales in the audioguides provided at the entrance. It's just gorgeous. A union between the construction of man and nature really well succeeded. I must say that we have also virtually bonded to the Lord-hero Erasmus.... You can't not visit if you pass by here.

  • Incredible castle! Very well built-in into the side of a cliff cave. The story of Erasmus the robbed Baron is amazing and you must pay attention to it. Castle is very well restored and available everywhere for viewing. Must see!
  • The castle is great, you get an audio guide giving you really interesting information. As you go around the number you need to press on your guide in each area is clearly displayed on the wall and you can go around the castle in your own time.
