From Trieste: Postojna Cave & Predjama Castle

From Trieste: Postojna Cave & Predjama Castle

Postojna Cave, the queen of all caves, is the best-known cave in the world. It is also the greatest tourist attraction in Slovenia and one of the world’s largest karst (limestone) monuments. This is the only place in the world where the underground landscape can be traversed on an electric train and where you get to meet this underground kingdom’s most famous inhabitant – the proteus (olm) – up close.  A fantastic web of tunnels, passages, galleries, and halls, an astonishing diversity of karst features, as well as easy access are certainly the main reasons for the popularity of the cave and the large number of visitors (more than 36 million of them in over 200 years). The Predjama Castle reigns over the surrounding area, not far from the Postojna Cave, in the idyllic village of Predjama. This picturesque, magnificent, defiant, mysterious, and impregnable castle has been perched up in the middle of a vertical 123-meter high cliff for more than 800 years. Its romantic appeal is further emphasized by the idyllic Lokva River, which disappears into the underground world deep down below the castle. As the only preserved cave castle in Europe, the Predjama Castle offers a unique insight into the building techniques and resourcefulness of people in the Middle Ages, who were looking for and found a safe harbor for themselves right at the entrance of the cave. During a siege that took place in the 15th century, the castle provided a refuge for its best-known and most notorious owner – Erazem of Predjama.  The legend of the courageous robber baron Erazem, who remained undefeated until one of his servants betrayed him, is still in people’s minds, inspiring and alluring as ever. It was this safe abode of his that helped the brave knight resist the besiegers without much difficulty for more than a year. Let your guide take you through these unforgettable sights for an ideal day excursion.

Alessandro was a great guide! This was a new tour so it was only me and my friend on the tour and he did a wonderful job of keeping us informed and entertained. The wineries were beautiful and their staff were so kind and welcoming. Nadia at Guia winery did a wonderful job of explaining each wine and the process in which it was made. Le Rampe in Conegliano was beautiful and the food paired with the wines was so fresh and tasty. The tour was wonderful and relaxed so we had lots of time to enjoy the views and taste the wines. Every one on this tour welcomed us and made us feel like old friends. Highly recommend this tour!

We enjoyed the day very much. It was a beautiful day to tour around a small seaside towns. Nothing very exciting like Venice but peaceful, friendly people with good food. It was worth the trip. Our tour guide Norman was proud Slovenian and learned a lot about the country.

This was a great way to spend the day sampling the wines, and I really enjoyed having a smaller group and getting to know people more. Georgia was a great guide! Very friendly and knowledgeable. Be sure to eat enough before the tour and keep snacking throughout!

It was fantastic. Filippo was a great host. The recipes we made were delicious and we were able to participate in making all of the food. Highly recommend!

Our tour guide Dan was fantastic source of knowledge! Enjoyed learning about Italy and Slovenia from him.
