Whispered secrets of a fairytale castle
Do you have the courage to travel through time? Come to Bojnice and let yourself be drawn into the fascinating stories of the most famous Slovak castle, whose fairytale look was inspired by the beauty of the Gothic castles in the Loire Valley in France. Its chambers will reveal their secrets to you regardless of whether you decide to explore them during the day or by candlelight during staged night tours. Enter a hall with a gilded angelic ceiling, an oriental salon from the time of the Ottoman Empire, or a chapel with a rare medieval altar by a Florentine painter. If you want to take a photo that looks like from a movie, choose the event In the footsteps of fairy tales – many fairy tales were filmed in Bojnice and the surrounding area. Are you interested in combining traditional Slovak crafts with centuries-old roots with modern design? During the weekend of July 16-17, 2022, the Festival of traditional crafts will bring tinkering, decorating Easter eggs, processing sheep's wool, basket weaving, making wooden kitchenware, lacemaking, and embroidery into the streets of Bojnice. If you want to try working on the potter's wheel or painting ceramics, visit a permanent Bojnica attraction – Bencovje grunt – a museum of traditional crafts.
