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.

The organizers contacted me through WhatsApp a few days before the activity to confirm hotel pickup. The shuttle was on time, clean and comfortable. There were 6 other passengers in my group. We met the guide in Venice and the guided tour was approx 2 hours, tickets to the transport boat were included. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. We were able to choose how much free time we wanted to explore the city, after which the shuttle dropped us back off at our hotels.

Our guide Dean was very professional and explained many features of Slovenia to us in a very interesting way. The tour is very well organised, I recommend it! The places visited are splendid (castle and caves). Congratulations again to our guide!

Dean out your guide was amazing! So friendly and knowledgeable and made the trip feel like a family outing. He was so proud of his country. An amazing day and Lake Bled and Ljubljana are both stunning - I wish I could have stayed longer

The trip was convenient for pickup location and drop offs at the places. However, I did expect to have more time in each stop than we did.

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