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.

We did this Trieste Bus Tour on the first day of our 3 day stay in Trieste. It was an excellent introduction to this beautiful city. The bus moved at a good pace; not too quickly and not too slowly. The audio was instructive. The staff was polite and helpful. We had two lovely stops at Miramare and San Giusto. RB

The trip was great. We enjoyed exploring both sites. The castle has electronic guide so you can progress at your own pace. The cave has a person that leads you through the cave.

you get a good overview of Trieste. we would do it again in a heartbeat. a little restricted visibility as this was a small bus.

Very easy and smooth. The guides cared about making sure they would be back to pick us up

Very good guide. Perhaps a little more information about booking hop on slots
