Bojnice castle is a national cultural monument and museum at the same time. It is one of the most beautiful monuments in Slovakia and is visited by visitors from all over the world.

It is also one of the oldest and most distinguished of Slovak fortresses, standing on a travertine hill above the town. The first written records of its existence come from 1113 in a document from the Zobor abbey. In this Latin written document King Koloman confirmed the property as belonging to the Benedictine monastery of St. Hypolita in the upper Nitra.

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 as property of the Poznanovec family. The outer walls of the fortress were shaped according to the uneven rocky terrain, so creating the irregular outline with extended fortification

That angle is rich! Th play with the tour in shadow or not is a pleasure! It's very sharp! The light have a presence in some angle, it's an excellent POV!

Excellent POV and composition to appreciate this impressive castle. There is a slight tilt to the left, but otherwise the architectural planes and details are enjoyable and interesting to view. Great use of light and crisply focused. Super!
