  • "The castle visit is a must - you will need to climb steep steps to reach the top - well worth it." See review
  • "Overall this tour is the place almost all tourists are going too, so be ready for big groups, but it is very informative, and helps you appreciate the land and layout, of what used to be!" See review
  • "a beautiful little castle doesn't take long to get round but worth the visit, interesting to see the different levels build over the cave that was once also lived in." See review

Cave walking tour.

The caves are beautiful and well worth the trip. You take the train in ~2 km and then have a one hour walking tour with a guide. Then you take the train back out. The castle tour is self-guided and much less crowded, not that there were large crowds at the cave. The walking tour takes about 45 minutes. It was very interesting. Our driver and guide, Barbara L., did an excellent job. She was very personal and knowledgeable. All in all, an excellent day.

Very good well put together trip, firstly to caves which were incredible. I have never seen such a vast amount if caves sone if which is covered on a train and a cerrain amount on foot. After some spare time where I managed to get some lunch continued to castle which is an amazing as set in cliffs with many levels (not suitable if you have trouble walking) with an accompanying audio guide. A unique fortress

Great half day tour

Our guide Lana was very charming and a great guide. The Postojana Caves felt like being in a fairytale, however, our guide from the Caves (not Lana) rushed us through the caves not giving us much time to take photographs. Predjama Castle, the largest cave castle in the world, was charming. I would recommend this delightful tour.

Two Contrasting Attractions
Ken G
, Oct 2019
The cave complex is the largest we have ever seen and we have visited many around the world. They are entered by way of a railway journey of 5 kms in length followed by a walk of 1.5 kms over smooth paths but at times with steep gradients. The mass of internal features are simply spectacular. By contrast, "the castle within a cave" which was the second visit of the tour was a quite different but equally amazing sight. The whole day was most pleasant in a group of 6 and was well looked after by Gal, our helpful and knowledgeable guide.

Dear Ken G, thanks for sharing your thoughts about our trip to Postojna cave and Predjama castle, we are happy to get a 5-star review. The Cave system is really big, it is so big that you have to enter it with a train to get the whole experience. Than the walking part comes, where you walk between different sculptures and halls. Finishing the trip with a visit of Predjama castle is the way we do it. It is one amazing structure from the medieval times. Gal your guide for sure told you a lot about it and he will be happy to read your feedback. Thank you and if you have some plans traveling back to Slovenia let us know. Best regards, Martin Popit

I have been in several caves, but I've never seen anything as remarkable and beautiful and interesting as the Postojna Caves! The Castle was quite interesting because it was built into a mountain, but nothing else about the castle was unique--oh, except for the torture room
icon Response from Host , Oct 2019
Dear Pat P, Thank you for your review we are happy that you share your feedback with everybody here at Tripadvisor. We see you are already an expert of caves 😊 it is truth that Postojna cave is really something you can not find anywhere in the world but here in Slovenia. Castle is really a unique one since it is built into a cave at the middle of rocky cliff. If you went to the biggest castles in the world than this one is the smallest one and then maybe not interesting as you would think but if you listen to all the stories behind it makes this experience even more attractive. Thank you again and if you are coming back to Slovenia, let us know. Best regards, Martin Popit
