Predjama Castle is something you have to see for yourself. The castle is literally built into the cave which gave the inhabitants extra protection against attackers. Just less than 10 minutes from Postojna Cave you can easily see both destinations easily in one day and be back to Lubjiana in time for a great dinner and a luxurious ice cream cone. More on the ice cream later! Anyway, the castle was built by the Germans around 1274. It was the seat for knight Erazem Luegg Or Luegger who was the son of the Governor of Trieste. Later the castle received a makeover when it fell into the hand of the Oberburg family in 1511 and again switching hands again to Count Michael Cronberg in 1846. The castle was nationalized after WWII and today is a museum for all to see.
