  • Located in Postojna, Slovenia

  • is a sturdy castle built into a natural cavern,

  • halfway up a 400-foot cliff side.

  • Predjama Castle was built in the thirteenth century,

  • in Gothic-styled architecture.

  • However, after a siege in the sixteenth century,

  • the exterior was reconstructed

  • and is what you see today.

  • But there's more to this castle than meets the eye.

  • Beneath it lays the Postojna Cave Park.

  • The caves are accessible during May to September,

  • and closed in the winter,

  • so as not to disturb the hibernating local bats.

  • The castle has changed ownership throughout its history;

  • however, the most famous inhabiter was Erazem Lueger.

  • He was a fifteenth century Robin Hood-like character

  • who stole from the rich to give to the needy.

  • Today, the castle and caves are open

  • for the public to explore and learn more

  • about its previous colorful owners.
