Day 7 & 8 : Explored the coastal towns (Piran, Portoroz, Izola.) On the way visited Predjama castle and Postojna caves.
Next in the list of day trips from Ljubljana is Predjama castle, a 15th century castle perched high up in the 123-meter high cliff, that stood there for some 800 years (and still counting). Listed among the Guinness World Records as the largest cave castle in the world, it is one of those rare castles that would make you question its foundation, even today.It’s interesting to watch how a natural cave was used to build an entire fortress with a few well distinguished bedrooms for its royal owners and the adjoining castle walls. It’s rare to find such an establishment from the past, anywhere else in the world.Please note that the best time to visit Predjama castle is between May and September. During the rest of the year, the castle only allows a restricted entry, because of its favourable temperatures as a hibernation for a colony of bats.A day trip from Ljubljana to Predjama castle and Postojna cave (yes both places can be visited in a day or a half-day trip) can be booked for nearly 70 Euro.
