Bojnice Castle is a prominently Romanesque-style castle with some Gothic and Renaissance architectural features that were built in the 12th century. While it was built over a thousand years ago, it’s been restored a few times.

It is one of the most visited castles in this region and has even been the setting for various fantasy and fairy-tale movies. 

An Italian fantasy series called Fantaghirò was filmed over the course of five years just beyond the castle walls.
