"Slovakia's Premiere Castle" Top 5 Page for this destination Bojnice by TexasDave

Bojnice Travel Guide: 31 reviews and 93 photos

There are several things that make this a unique castle among the many to be found in Slovakia. It started to be built in 1113, but was a wooden structure with at moat. The stone castle was started in the 1300's. The last owner, Count Jan Pallfy, maintained this castle as his home until his death in 1908. During the Communist years many historical sites were neglected, but not this castle. It was used by bigshots as a weeekend getaway and conference center. It is also built upon a cave with a spring inside.
Near the castle there is also a zoo, which isn't the biggest or the best, but makes another point of interest for families.
