Directions to Chateau Appony
Oponice is a small village located between Topoľčany and Nitra. Its history is so vast it can touch the stars. It was looked after by the Apponyi dynasty from 1392.
Their descendents stayed there until 1940. They were excellent diplomats, rich and influential people of the Austrian-Hungarian Empire. They collected one of the greatest libraries of its time in the Central Europe called the Bibliothecu Apponianu. The most famous landmark of this region is undoubtedly the Apponyi Castle, which was the first seat of Apponyi dynasty. Its ruins reflect an old man who stares into a grave.
Chateau Appony is a Renaissance chateau, the seat of Apponyi dynasty for more than six centuries. Apart from Chateau Apponyi you can find in the area many more historical buildings there such as Manor House Marczibányi (Manor House Oponice), where you can visit the hunting and ethnography museum. You can find artifacts of legendary American bombers called the flying fortress B17 , that finished their military mission here at the end of the World War II. In addition to this you can view St. Paul's and St. Peter's Church which hold the tombs of members of Apponyi dynasty.
