There are even multiple restaurants on site for if you get hungry!

One of the most unique things about the Predjama Castle is you can stay overnight. Just a few hundred meters away from the castle is Hotel Jama, which used to be a hotel used for the Yugoslavian secret service, and now has its own museum inside.
