Of you are looking for the most romantic castle in Slovakia, don't go anywhere else than to the spa town of Bojnice. It is precisely where the beautiful historical building - Bojnice Castle - rises so nicely. This charming castle is one of the most beautiful monuments in Slovakia.

Visitors from all over the world look for it every year. And not only for its engaging history, but especially for its wonderful romantic environment and architecture.

Originally, the Bojnice Castle was a Gothic castle from the 11th century. Since then, many owners have taken possession of the castle, including the Hungarian magnate Matthew Csák of Trenčín, Matthias Corvinus and Thurzo family.

Since the 17th century, the Pálffy family were the holders of the castle who in 1909 completed the reconstruction of the Gothic-Renaissance castle into a present-day chateau.

As well as other castles and chateaus, even Bojnice, is emblazoned with a number of superstitions. The most famous one is tied to the last owner of Bojnice Castle, Ján Pálffy, and his unfortunate love for the French Countess de Jeanville.

At Bojnice Castle, visitors can take part in day and evening tours with a duration of 90 minutes with an account of the history of the castle.

The mysterious character of Bojnice Castle is also attributed to the natural travertine cave. The cave includes two lakes. In the past, the cave served as a shelter and water reservoir.

Not only the interior but also the exterior of the castle is charming. Bojnice Castle is surrounded by the character park. There are several rare and interesting trees. One of them is the Lime Tree of king Matthias or the rare Ginkgo biloba tree.

During the year, a number of events take place at the castle. Among the most popular are the Night of Ghosts, Valentine's Day at the Castle, International Children's Day at the Castle, or the Festival of Fairytale Castle, or Santa Claus and Christmas at the Castle.
