Bojnický zámok

The first written records of its existence come from 1113 in a document from the Zobor abbey. Originally the fortress was made from wood and grew out of the older fortress. Gradually over the 13th century it was built up from stone. At the end of the 13th century Bojnice was seized by the magnate Matus Cak Trenciansky and the fortress remained in his hands until 1321. After him, in the 14th and 15th centuries, ownership of the fortress changed hands between the following noble families : Gileth, Leustach and Noffry. It is rumoured that King Matej himself took pleasure in visiting Bojnice and would sit under the lime tree opposite the fortress’s entrance, which was named the King Matej Lime tree. He would dictate official documents in its shadow, which would begin: ‘ Sub nostris dilectis tillis Bojniciensibus’. After the death of King Matej the fortress was seized by the Zapolsky troops, who inhabited it till 1526. In 1527 the fortress was given to Alexej Thurzo. The Thurzos transformed the Gothic fortress into a renaissance seat. After the Thurzo family died out, the king presented it to Palffys in 1644. The fortress received a baroque resemblance at the end of the 17th century.
