Create an itinerary including Predjama Castle
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.

  • What a great side trip! The castle is built in to the side of the mountain and is very unique. There's a lot of stairs so if you have mobility issues you wont see everything.

  • It is a beautiful castle with a beautiful setting. Every thing about it is beautiful. We had the English commentary device to listen to and it was very interesting. We spent a couple of hours going around it. Highly recommended
  • A beautiful castle, inside and out. Far enough from the city to get away and close enough that it doesn't require a long drive. Fantastic setting for all kinds of photo opportunities too.
