The gem of Bojnice is the ”fairy-tale”
Bojnický zámok Castle,
one of the most visited and most beautiful
castles not only in Slovakia, but also in central Europe.
The Castle stands on a large travertine
monticule on the site of medieval castle
from the 11th century.
In the past, the most famous
Hungarian noble families owned
it and the last of them was the family of Pálfi.
Count Ján Pálfi had the structure
reconstructed by the architect J. Hubert
from Budapest at the end of the 19th century
following the pattern of romantic
castles of the Loire in central France.
