The name of the castle "Predjamski Grad" describes it perfectly - it's the castle ("Grad") in front of ("pred") the cave ("jama"). I've never before seen a castle actually built into a cave halfway up a cliff... anywhere. This really is unique. The furnishings inside are reproductions but still very interesting to see. In fact anything wooden would have to be a reproduction as the humidity due to being in a cave is so great that everything rots. Do take the guided tour - it's really interesting, especially the story about the life (and strange death) of Erasmus Lueger (a sort of Slovene Robin Hood). The views of the surrounding countryside from the castle are fanastic too.
