Overview
More
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.

Cool walking tour of the castle. Can’t believe how old it is. Watch your footing because it can get slippery. Very historical

The 9km drive between the Postojna caves & the castle takes longer than one expects & the parking is not very near though we parked at the closest one. The huge castle built into an enormous cave entrance is stunning from outside. Unfortunately we didn't...More

Great castle experience, Has good audio guide. If you park in the parking below it is a bit steep so disembark any passengers from car if they are not fit to walk steep hill.

From Ljubljana it's a straightforward independent trip to both the castle and Postojna caves by public transport but from Bled , you'd be lucky to get back before sunset and the difference in cost would be minimal. Predjama is not the wonderful Skofja Loka Castle...More

The fact that it is half in a cave is incredibly cool and unique. It makes for very picturesque photos. The tour of the castle is neatly organized and takes around 45 min to an hour. It's worth seeing. You get to visit the cave...More

This castle is built into the side of a mountain. There are many steps to climb and descend. So this attraction is not suitable for those with mobility issues or for young children. Upon entering you receive an audio guide which explains things as you...More

Hi, a shuttle bus is available in July and August. Predjama Castle is 9 km from Postojna Cave and there are road signs in every crossroad. Welcome!

Nope, will be easier without the push chair.. very steep stairs at some places. I would say take the audio guide for the interesting stories / information for each place.
