About 12 km northeastern from Postojna is situated Predjamski grad (The Cave Castle). It is one of the most visited castles in Slovenia. Castle was built-up into the ovehanging rock apparently accessible from just one side.
Todays castle dates from the Renaissance.
Historical sources prove that the castle existed in the 13th century and probably even earlier. It was administered by the Jamski family. After the Jamski family, the castle was taken over by Adam Purgstaller, while from 1567 onwards it was home to the Kobenzl family, who had it renovated. The last noble owners, from 1846 to 1945, were the counts of Windischgrtz, who altered the castles external appearance.
