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.

This place was very informative... it was beautiful. I was in and out in 30 minutes. It was worth my 2 hour detour to see it. more »
Passate a visitarlo ne vale la pensa, vi trasporteranno nel Medioevo e riuscirete a vedere che cosa l’uomo è in grado di costruire. more »Go to visit it is worth the think, they will transport you to the Middle Ages and you will be able to see what man is able to build.
One if the greatest castles I've ever visited. Everything starts pretty ordinary, for a castle tour. But then, near the top of the castle, there is a big surprise behind the actual castle, which is very impressive.
Everything you expect from a castle & caverns. Be careful on the steps. You slip easily on them. Also stop buy for a coffee and cake at the adjacent restaurants. A real treat.
