Predjama--Not my kind of castle

In Slovenia is this really neat castle called Prejama Grad, that is built right into the side of a mountain.

You can read a little about it here.  We enjoyed walking around the rooms on the multiple levels, seeing the torture chamber, checking out the antlers, and looking at the displays.

The castle area was as much enclosed as it was directly open to the mountain and outdoors

It was pretty impressive, but also pretty drafty, as evidenced by our Rudolph-like noses!
This is the beginning of the entrance to a cave below the castle, not accessible during the winter months
I now have a new appreciation for our drafty Italian house--it could be worse!
