As a result of less-than-diligent research, we confused Bojnice, near Trencin, with Bojnicky,, near Nitra, resulting in a 200km. back-tracking! However, the decision was worth every extra kilometer, as this fairy-tale castle was without any doubt the highlight among the many and varied Castles we have visited throughout our travels in Europe...
Hidden from view en route to unassuming Bojnice village, until arrival at the entry gates, one's first impression is that Mr. Disney had been very active in this tiny corner of Slovakia, as the imposing medieval structure, topped with its multiple azure towers, is simply too attractive to be authentic. Set in extensive manicured Gardens, complete with duck-ponds and statuary, the castle begs for closer scrutiny. We were lucky that our small visitor group was English-enabled, so were spared the default Slovak language guided tour, as our pleasant and knowledgeable young guide was happy to conduct her explanation in the common tongue.
The original 14th century fortress was reincarnated in the 19th century into its present Renaissance design, following the prevalent French concept of impressive, but at the same time, attractive styling. Today Bojnice is one of the most popular and much-visited Castles in all of Europe, with its world-class museum exhibits.
Every one of the many apartments was fully furnished in the appropriate and authentic period artifacts, and the whole hour-long tour was breathtakingly fascinating. The castle has been beautifully restored to its original condition, taking into account the various alterations and additions by its succession of noble occupants.
A steep staired descent to the 26 meter-deep underground grotto well, supplying the complete water requirements to the structure, is a reminder that this technology was not a modern development exclusive to the current century.
The 700-year-old Linden tree, still thriving on the adjacent lawn, is a natural miracle to behold, on the way to the adjoining small zoological garden, reputed to be one of the best in Eastern Europe. Refreshment facilities and souvenir stalls are also operational during the tourist season.
Bojnice Castle is truly a man-made wonder, not to be missed.

This time we have visited castle during the winter. Although the scope of visit was slightly limited, it was still very interesting. There was a chance to claim to the highest place in the complex. Excellent winter visibility allowed to see quite wide part of Trencin region.

We took a day trip to this castle from Zelena Voda. We walked all the way from Zelena voda here. The castle ruins are absolutely gorgeous, stunning views... There is still some renovation going on so be aware of that. But it doesn't take the beauty from it. We had nice cool beer up in the bar, there is free library program going on, you can take a book home for free. Definitely worth the visit!

Yes, it is this one - Cachtice is famous for Elisabeth Bathory and her taste for young girls blood.... she got her justice right. Castle itself is runs under partial renovations, but setting is just fantastic ! On top of the hill ( 350 m over sea level ) with great view of countryside around, especially vertical view over small village Visnova at castle foothills. Quite a steep walk up, so wear good shoes. Open 10-18 daily , small fee to get in.

This is it! This small town is situated between two beautiful hills on a dead end road.You cannot do much there other than taking bath in healing water, taking walks trough noiseless wooden park and good eat. If you'r looking for healthy time, go there.

In the western Slovakia in the Mountains Strazovske Mountains , on the steep hill there are towering ruins of castle Uhrovec from the 13th century. One of the most valuable roman Castles in Slovakia, the estate of the castle in the 16th century belonged to an influential noble family Zayo, originated from Croatia. First documented records date from 1258. The ruins are located 591 meters a.s.l.
The castle is located in the woods, surrounded by hills, unseen from civilisation - if you don´t know about it, you won´t find it. Take a steep trail from village Uhrovske Podhradie where time stopped passing half century ago and enjoy a 20 minutes workout. When you get to the top of hill, you will be rewarded by a wonderful view on the castle. Take a bridge to get inside and use all your senses (well, tasting is not recommended, there is no a high level of hygiene and a lot of dust...) to perceive this medieval ruin´s charms. Walk up to upper square and meet this guy who´ll sell you a (unprobable) beer or even a well designed T-shirt! Take a tour around the preserved buildings and enjoy the views. Amazing experience.

The title says it all. The park is focused on housing miniature versions of all the Castles of Slovakia. While the concept is interesting, many of the miniatures are uninspired with basic colors and limited details represented. The park also has some nice, large wood animal carvings that offered my kids a nice climbing surface. The best part of the park was a shaded area with picnics tables that we used for our lunch.
The park contains a gift shop that also sell snacks and drinks as well as some of the cleanest park restrooms I have ever encountered.
