The International Festival of Ghosts and Monsters in the Bojnice Castle is the greatest of its kind in Slovakia with an original spooky but amusing atmosphere and a huge number of visitors.

The Festival of Ghosts and Monsters has been held since 1994 at the break of April and May, during the two longer weekends, at the most beautiful Slovak castle. During this time the area of the castle is full of various attractions and temptations, eerie atmosphere and good spirit, including stalls with refreshment and good food.

Various monsters take part in the festival, not only from Slovakia but also from all over Europe. The event is always conceived as a story in which the visitors are invited to participate during the tour of the castle and at the courtyard. They can meet witches and see tragic love stories, vampires´ tricks, an invasion of aliens and others.

Every year has a different motto or topic, a different story and characters, a different idea. The festival belongs to the greatest of such festivals in the world and more than 50,000 tourists come to see it every year.
