  • 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.
