Travel: Predjama Castle, Slovenia

First stop when back in Slovenia was the picturesque Predjama Castle. The castle is situated 9 km away from the most famous cave in Slovenia, the Postojna Cave and entered the Guinness World Records list as being the largest castle built in the entrance to a cave (to check it out click here).

It seems to be unknown when the castle was exactly built but the most convincing guess I came across is the 12th century. The original name was Jama Castle which translate to cave castle.

After taking a few (dozen) pictures of me posing in front of the castle we started towards Ljubljana. A long day on the road behind us we reached our destination. To check out our road trip routes on a map see my previous post here.
