Bojnice is a historical town in central Slovakia. The centerpiece is the Castle, built in the 12th century in Gothic and Renaissance style.
The castle wasn’t open to visitors on Mondays, so we didn’t get to tour the inside, which was fine given the day we had planned!
Bojnice Castle was originally built as a wooden fort, and written records refer to the castle in 1013. In the mid-1900s the castle was confiscated by the Czechoslovak government and became the seat of several state institutions. It was destroyed by fire and later reconstructed in 1950.
