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.

We visited the castle after we went to the caves. Worth the visit. We did the tour. There are steep stairs to climb if you want to see the whole thing. But the views are worth the climb

The Predjama castle can be visited at your own pace, with a help of audioguide (really interesting). Be ready for steep and slippery stairs!

The castle is breathtaking and definitely worth a visit. Unfortunately when we visited the caves underneath were closed, but still had a wonderful time. The entrance ticket costs 13,80 euro and they give you an audio guide. I suggest you have your own headphones otherwise...More

It is a unique castle, where the so called Slovenian Robin Hood defended himself from the Austrian emperor's army. The castle was unbeatable and the guy was only killed because of a treason.

Firstly, whoever has rated this place as anything below a 4, is absolutely mad! I've been to many a castle, but never one that has been constructed into the side of a cave. It's unique and astonishing. The drive to Predjama is lovely and you...More

This is an incredible castle, built in the side of a mountain. Definitely worth a side trip. They have an audible self guided tour. It is very descriptive and informative. This is not your ordinary castle!

Amazing site to see - a one of a kind castle that you just can't miss when in Slovenia. Walking through you can only imagine what daily life must have been like. Awesome photos too!

This is an interesting place. it is a castle built into the walls of a cave. It has a great history and story .. probably one of the few places where someone has been assasinated whilst on the toilet! Lots of steep steps though, so...More

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.
Hi, we are doing a day trip from Ljubljana, and want to do the Postonja Caves, Predjama Castle, and Piran. I know we can get a combo ticket for the caves and castle. I was thinking we could get an early start from Ljubljana and hit either the caves or the castle on the way down to Piran, then lunch in Piran, and hit the caves or the castle on the way back to Llubljana (whichever one we didn't see on the way down). Is this too much for one day? How long does it take to tour the castle? Is it guided or self-tour? It looks like the caves take about 2.5 hours, leaving every hour. Any advice about when the caves are most crowded? If we do as described above, would it be better to see the caves in the morning and castle in the afternoon or the other way around? thank you so much for any thoughts on this!

I did all three in one day and yes, it was a long day but worth it! Didn't rush anything and still managed to spend a decent amount of time at the caves and the castle with a few hours in Piran. In hindsight I should have... More
