Predjama Castle Tour

The Predjama Castle towers above the surrounding area in the idyllic village of Predjama, a mere nine kilometres from Postojna Cave.

Access and Parking

You will reach the castle by a local road. There is a payable car park in front of the castle and holders of combo tickets to Postojna Cave and the Predjama Castle can also use a shuttle bus between the two attractions, which is next available from 16th March to 30th April 2024. Another option for the transport between Postojna Cave and the Predjama Castle is the taxi service – the staff at the Postojna Cave Park ticket office will be happy to help you arrange it.

No dogs or other pets are allowed inside the castle. 

Cave under Predjama Castle

From May to September, you can also visit the picturesque Cave under Predjama Castle. A tour of both of the cave's upper levels takes around 45 minutes and is easy enough to be done by children from the age of six. Other floors of the second largest Slovenian show cave can be toured by more experienced cavers as part of adventure caving tours.

Owing to its location and pleasant temperatures, the Cave under Predjama Castle features some interesting inhabitants – a colony of bats. During the bats' hibernation period, visitors are not allowed to enter the cave. 

Castle Tour by means of Audio Guides or a Mobile App 

An audio tour of the Predlama Castle takes just over an hour. Audio guides, which are included in the ticket price (for adults, students and children from the age of 10), are available in 17 languages (Slovenian, Croatian, English, German, Italian, French, Hungarian, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, Russian, Polish, Czech, Hebrew, Chinese, Japanese and Korean). You can also download a free mobile app, which will guide you around the magnificent castle.

In the event of a damaged audio guide, you will be charged a repair cost fee in the amount of €50/audio guide.

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (Drones)

It is prohibited to use drones and other remotely piloted aerial vehicles in the Predjama Castle area to ensure the safety of visitors and to protect the cultural monument and the rock face above the castle, where rare bird species nest.
