Predjama Castle, perched high up in a vertical cliff, in the village of Predjama, dominates the surrounding area. It’s an interesting and romantic sight. The castle was referred to in writing for the first time in 1202 and today it has been placed on lists of top 10 castles to see in the world. Erazem of Predjama (Erasmus) is the main protagonist of numerous legends – on the one hand these legends glorify him as a passionate, handsome and noble knight, while on the other he is described as a bandit and a robber baron who met his death on the toilet, having been hit by a cannon ball.
