Romantic fairy-tale Bojnice Castle is one of the most visited and most attractive castles in central Europe. The Chateau is located near Prievidza, on the edge of the Strážovské vrchy mountains over the town of Bojnice.

The chateau houses a museum of art and history. The exhibition contains the original furniture, various artefacts and paintings like the late gothic collection Bojnice Altar by a master of Florence from 14th century and many other mysterious and hidden secrets.
