During this private day tour, you will visit one of the most visited and most beautiful castles not only in Slovakia, but also in central Europe. It´s called Bojnický zámok castle and is located in a small spa town Bojnice. Some say it is also one of the most romantic castles in Europe.
After a tour at the castle you will stop for a lunch break after a 30 min drive to a mountainous area. You can either have a lunch in a unique Slovak restaurant or simply enjoy your packed lunch and walk around the place, which is situated in a beautiful setting 800m asl.
After the lunch break you will drive through picturesque countryside to the village of Čičmany. This village is different than the other villages in Slovakia, because of the decorated houses. The old original houses are still painted with various ornaments and these ornaments are even part of the UNESCO Intangible World Heritage.

Very pleasant experience with Martin on our day tour to Bojnice Castle, Cicimany village and Slovensky Betlehem. Martin was very knowledgeable and friendly. Most reasonable price for the attractions you could get at comfort.
I had a zippy one day tour from Bratislava and met my guide Tom from Slovakation in Trencin, who was up for a good chat in English! Such a great experience including Bojnice Castle, the painted houses and a delicious local lunch. Would highly recommend as a day option from Bratislava. I am looking forward to planning a trip to other parts of Slovakia in the future.
