"A very special castle!" Top 5 Page for this destination Predjama by JLBG

Predjama Travel Guide: 60 reviews and 164 photos

Every visitor to Slovenia knows the name of Predjama. Though, the village of Predjama is just a a few houses with nothing worth the look. Actually, the name of Predjama is famous because of it’s very special castle. Medieval castles are usually built on top of a hill, on top of a mountain or on top of a rock. Grad Predjama (castle of Predjama) is, as far as I know, the only one that was built at mid-height of a cliff, at the entrance of a cave! The caves extend on more than 15 km and a large part has never been fully explored yet.

    Thank you Jean-Louis for another remarkable page. Slovenia with Postojna and Predjama castle are still in my plans.
