Visit the most romantic castle in Slovakia – a fairy-tale gem of Europe, with its ethereal beauty resembling the most beautiful Gothic aristocratic residencies of France along the river Loire. The last aristocratic owners to the castle for almost 300 years had been the House of Pálffy, one of the most prominent Houses in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Museum has no less than 6.000 pieces of art in its rich collections making it one of the most intriguing treasuries of art in Europe. The most precious is the Medieval Altar (better known as the Bojnice Altar) from the 14th century made by Florentine maestro Nardo di Cione. You will be enchanted by the Golden Hall with its angel ceiling, the Marble Room, Hunady Hall with precious 400-year-old tapestry from Brussels, the Oriental Room with the wall paneling from the days of famous Ottoman Turkish Empire, the Coat of Arms Hall, the Knight’s Hall, magnificent large statues made of true Carrara marble of the Assyrian monarch Sardanapalus and the Jewish king Saul acquired in Rome and made by English sculptor Thomas Waldo Story. An inevitable part of the tour is a travertine cave with two ponds deep underground making it a perfect place for bats to live in. There is a number of interesting events taking place in the castle all throughout the year, for children and adults both (Valentine’s Weekend, Easter Walks at the Castle, International Festival of Ghosts and Monsters, Fairy-tale Castle, Culture Music Summer, Knight’s Days, Christmas at the Castle and many others). This romantic castle makes one of the most desirable places for wedding ceremonies in Slovakia.
