• Oponice 133, Oponice

A rare historical building in the picturesque village of Oponice is a Renaissance mansion dating from the 16th-17th century. The locals also call it Small Chateau. It used to be the seat of the Bartakovich noble family. Late, the mansion was owned by the house of Apponyi, however, they never lived here. Today, the mansion houses the Apponyi's Hunting Museum.

The museum presents more than 2500 exhibits related to the Apponyi and Bartakovich family as well as to priests of Bernolák era, who worked in Oponice at the turn of the 18th and 19th centuries. Visitors can admire picture collections, period furnishings, part of the famous family library from 1774, hunting trophies, sacral objects from the local church, as many other valuable items.

Since 2005, a new exhibition has been installed on the ground floor of the museum, presenting artifacts of fallen allied aircraft in the Tribeč Mountains at the end of World War II. We recommend that you combne your visit of the museum with a tour to the Tomb of Apponyi at the Church of St. Peter and Paul.
