From Trieste: Postojna Cave & Predjama Castle

2. 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.

Would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Trieste, we had an absolute blast! Ernie was an excellent guide and fantastic storyteller. He told us different facts about Trieste and Slovenia on the drive to Lake Bled. Lake Bled is stunning and we were given some free time to explore. Ernie recommended trying the traditional Bled cake which was delicious and he also drove us up to the castle! When we arrived at Ljubljana, we were given a short tour and then free time to explore. It was the perfect tour and special thanks to Ernie for making our trip magical.

We had a lovely trip even though the weather was not great at Lake Bled it was still a well worth visit and then onto Ljubljana where it brightened up and we could enjoy our time walking around the city and sitting outside taking in the culture Our guide Ernie was very knowledgeable and passionate about his country and very helpful

The tour was so great and so chill, no pressure to go from one place to the next, was able to relax and chit chat and get the know the culture and get to know the guide more too!

Fantastic!! An excellent way to discover the beauty of the city especially if you have little time available. Respected times. Professional and very helpful staff.

Ernie, our guide, was excellent and while the weather could have been better, we had a great day.
