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.

  • 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
  • Looks amazing from the outside and quite interesting from the inside. The tour inside is not too long, but you can see how you can build together a cave and a castle. Unique.
