Important to know!
The Slovenian Government intentionally robs tourists!
Beware! There is no clearly indicated place to purchase vignette stickers.
If you fail to get such a sticker, you'll come accross officers with binoculars shortly after the border who watch and punish.
As of 2017 the fine is EUR 150, which is pure income for the Slovenian Government.
We wish Slovenia to invest these funds in clear indications for purchase of stickers and not in binoculars.
Важно е да знаете!
Правителството на Словения ограбва умишлено туристите!
Внимавайте! На границата със Словения няма ясно указано място за закупуване на винетни стикери.
Ако пропуснете да закупите такъв стикер малко след границата дебнат служители с бинокли и санкционират.
Към 2017 г. глобата е 150 евро, чист доход за правителството на Словения.
Пожелаваме на Словения да инвестира тези средства в ясни обозначения за закупуване на винетни стикери, а не в бинокли.

Predjama Castle (Slovene: Predjamski grad or grad Predjama, German: Höhlenburg Lueg, Italian: Castel Lueghi) is a Renaissance castle built within a cave mouth in south-central Slovenia, in the historical region of Inner Carniola. It is located in the village of Predjama, approximately 11 kilometres from the town of Postojna and 9 kilometres from Postojna Cave.
The castle was first mentioned in 1274 with the German name Luegg, when the Patriarch of Aquileia built the castle in Gothic style. The castle was built under a natural rocky arch high in the stone wall to make access to it difficult. It was later acquired and expanded by the Luegg noble family, also known as the Knights of Adelsberg (the German name of Postojna).
The castle became known as the seat of the knight Erasmus of Lueg (or Luegg, Luegger), lord of the castle in the 15th century and a renowned robber baron. He was the son of the imperial governor of Trieste, Nikolaj Lueger.
According to legend, Erasmus came into conflict with the Habsburgs when he killed the commander of the imperial army, Marshall Pappenheim, who had offended the honour of Erasmus's deceased friend, Andrej Baumkircher of Vipava. Fleeing the vengeance of the Holy Roman Emperor Frederick III, Erasmus reached the family fortress of Predjama. From there, he allied himself with King Matthias Corvinus and began to attack Habsburg estates and towns in Carniola. The emperor commissioned the governor of Trieste, Andrej Ravbar, with the capture or killing of Erasmus. Erasmus was killed after a long siege. According to a popular but unfounded legend, Erasmus was betrayed by one of his men and was killed by a shot from a cannon in his lavatory.
After the siege and destruction of the original castle, its ruins were acquired by the Oberburg family. In 1511, the second castle, built by the Purgstall family in the first decade of the 16th century, was destroyed in an earthquake. In the year 1567, Archduke Charles of Austria leased the castle to baron Philipp von Cobenzl, who paid it off after 20 years. In 1570, the current castle was built in the Renaissance style, pressed next to a vertical cliff under the original Medieval fortification. The castle has remained in this form, virtually unchanged, to the present day.
In the 18th century, it became one of the favourite summer residences of the Cobenzl family. Both the Austrian statesman and famous art collector Philipp von Cobenzl and the diplomat Count Ludwig von Cobenzl spent time in the castle.
In 1810, the castle was inherited by Count Michael Coronini von Cronberg, and in 1846 it was sold to the Windischgrätz family, who remained its owners until the end of World War II, when it was nationalized by the Yugoslav Communist authorities and turned into a museum.
A vertical natural shaft, which Erasmus ordered to be enlarged, leads out of the original castle, and leads to the exit located at the top of the cliff, 25 meters away from the cliff's edge. This shaft allowed Erasmus to secretly supply the castle with food in the time of the siege; he also used it to continue with his robberies.
Predjama Castle was used as the castle featured in the 1986 movie Armour of God by Golden Harvest starring Jackie Chan, Alan Tam, Rosamund Kwan and Lola Forner. It was also investigated for paranormal activity in a 2008 episode of Ghost Hunters International on the Sci Fi Channel. It was also the filming location of Laibach's Sympathy For The Devil cover's music video.
The multiplayer map Castle from the 2014 Counter-Strike: Global Offensive DLC, Operation Breakout, is based on Predjama Castle.

WARNING: I don't know how to pronounce anything in this video.
Next stop, Ljubljana. This place is the capital of Slovenia and we were stoked to be here for the night.
If you are ever in Slovenia, we’d highly recommend checking out Postojna caves, a natural beauty and unlike much other.

Postojna Cave and the Predjama Castle
The Postojna Cave—a subterranean wonderland of karst tunnels, caverns, and galleries, adorned with dramatic stalagmites and stalactites—is one of Slovenia’s most remarkable natural wonders and among the country’s most visited tourist attractions. It stretches along the Pivka River for an impressive 12.5 miles (20 kilometers).
Predjama Castle, a famous castle that still clings to Slovenia’s limestone cliffs.
Jackie Chan filmed in Predjama castle (Predjamski grad) in county Slovenia - close to Postojna Cave
The name of film is Armour of God.(1986).
Predjama Castle - as the only preserved Cave castle in Europe, the Predjama Castle offers a unique insight into the building techniques and resourcefulness of people in the Middle Ages, who were looking for and found a safe harbour for themselves right at the entrance into the cave.
During a siege that took place in the
15th century, the castle provided a refuge for its best known and most notorious owner - Erazem of
Predjama. The legend about the courageous robber baron Erazem, who remained undefeated until one
of his servants betrayed him, is still in people's minds, inspiring and alluring as ever. It was this safe abode
of his which helped the brave knight resist the besiegers without much difficulty for more than a year.
The Predjama Castle reigns over the surrounding area, not far from the Postojna Cave, in the idyllic
village of Predjama. This picturesque, magnificent, defiant, mysterious and impregnable castle has been
perched up in the middle of a vertical 123-metre high cliff for more than 800 years. Its romantic
appeal is further emphasized by the idyllic Lokva River, which disappears into the underground world
deep down below the castle.
The karst world with its cave system provides a perfect backdrop for the castle, as well as a hidden
passageway into freedom, a source of drinking water, an additional shelter and a space for storing food --
everything that turned out to be indispensable, invaluable and crucial during the siege.

Postojna Cave, Slovenia
The Postojna Cave system is a network of caves over 24km in length cut into the karst rock by the Pikva river. It has been a tourist attraction since 1819 when the Austrian emperor Francis I visited. There has been a railway to visit the caves since the nineteenth century. It is the second longest cave system in Slovenia and I believe the longest cave tourist trail in the world.
In the cave system we can also find olms (also known as proteus (Proteus anguinus)), a fully aquatic salamander. Unlike most amphibians, the olm spends all of its life underwater. Ift is found in the karst cave systems in the Dinaric Alps in what was western Yugoslavia. It was first mentioned in 1689 by the local naturalist Valvasor in his Glory of the Duchy of Carniola, who reported that, after heavy rains, the olms were washed up from the underground waters and were believed by local people to be a cave dragon's offspring. This animal has adapted to living in complete darkness. It is blind but has very good senses of smell and hearing.
