About Bojnice Castle
Bojnice Castle is one of the oldest and most important monuments in Slovakia. It stands on a travertine mound above the city. The first written record of the castle dates back to 1113 – the deed of the Zobor Abbey. Bojnice Castle was originally a wooden castle, an upgrade of the former hillfort. Over the course of the 13th century, the castle was rebuilt in stone by the Poznań family. A natural travertine cave with a diameter of 22 m and a height of 6 m is part of Bojnice Castle. The Bojnice Castle is surrounded by a landscape park.
