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.

Predjama castle was fantastic. The audio your gives great insights into the history of the castle and it's inhabitants, and you really start rooting for Erasmus by the time you get to his fateful toilet perch. We've been slowly making our way through castles and this was my family's favorite so far.
Absolutely recommended! It is definitely worth a visit, the audio-guide tour is extremely well-done and makes the visit very interesting and fascinating. Landscape and view from the castle are beautiful.
