Escape Castle

Are you ready for an original castle adventure? A great opportunity to socialise with your friends or colleagues in the picturesque surroundings of the Ljubljana Castle. Set out on the mission of saving the famous dragon – with a bit of knowledge, luck and cunning you will surely find him. It will be great fun!

What to Expect

An exciting adventure game with elements of the game “escape room”, giving you an opportunity to delve into history while having a great time. Five fun trials await you, in which you will learn about the city’s history, but above all have lots of fun and maybe even rescue a dragon – the very dragon, the guardian of the city, who sank into the underworld after doing battle with Knight George. It seems that the townspeople miss the dragon, because his image is found on the city coat-of-arms and flag, on the Dragon Bridge, on the registration plates of Ljubljana vehicles, on drain covers, on the steps of the castle tower, and so on. He appears in fairy tales and poems, and he is the symbol and mascot of sports clubs, as he exemplifies strength and greatness. But where has he gone?

One day, during the restoration of the castle, a deep chasm suddenly opened up. Smoke occasionally rose from the chasm. Renowned researchers from all over the world brought state-of-the-art equipment to the place and detected the faint pulse of life from an enormous depth. Could the dragon be at the bottom of the chasm?

But who could revive him? This task could only be accomplished by the noblest, the most resourceful, the most honest, the bravest and the most devoted knight. Are you perhaps the one who, in five dragon trials, will prove that you are brave enough and that noble blood is flowing in your veins? But beware: you only have one hour!
