The Predjama castle - presentation

The Predjama castle was carved into the living rock beneath an enormous overhanging rock cliff on the slope of Podgora. Once the home of robber knight Erazem Predjamski, it still fascinates men with its many legends and mysteries. Behind the newer renaissance building from the 16th century, a larger natural cave contains the remnants of an older, 13th century castle.

 

The stone stairs leading to the upper floors are cut out of the living rock, as are some of the inner walls.

 

The castle contains an archaeological exhibit featuring items found in the underground tunnels of Predjama. Also on display are documents about the castle's owners, hunting trophies, weapons… and the castle's most precious item, a Pieta from the early 15th century.
