Romanesque castle with some original Gothic and Renaissance elements built in the 12th century. Bojnice Castle was first mentioned in written records in 1113, in a document held at the Zobor Abbey.
Originally built as a wooden fort, it was gradually replaced by stone, with the outer walls being shaped according to the uneven rocky terrain.
The first owner was Matthew III Csák, who received it in 1302 from the King Ladislaus V of Hungary.
