DescriptionSlovakia has more than 100 castles, and this is your chance to see 5 of the most beautiful. Day 1: Start in Bratislava, heading directly toward the oldest Slovak city – Nitra. Visit Nitra Castle, where you can see the Romanesque cathedral built in the 11th-12th centuries. Move on to Oponice Chateau. Built in the 16th century, the chateau is located in a small village called Oponice. It once belonged to the Apponyi family, whose descendants stayed there until 1940. They were great diplomats of Austro-Hungarian monarchy and established one of the biggest libraries in Central Europe of their era - Bibliotheca Apponiana. Enjoy here delicious cakes and awesome Slovak wines before continuing on. Arrive at the Bojnice Castle, known so much for its beauty that it is ranked in the National Geographic Travel's Top 10 Castles in Europe, and discover why it is one of the most visited castles not only in Slovakia but in Europe. Venture below the castle to see the stalactite cave that lies beneath it. See the 700 year-old tree named the King´s Matej linden of Bojnice where King Matej Corvinus organized big feasts and meetings, before spending the night in Bojnice town. Day 2: After breakfast, continue on to the city of Trenčín. There, you will tour Trenčín´s Castle, one of the largest castles in Europe. Built on a steep cliff, it spent much of its time as the royal castle since its building in the 11th century and played an important role in a period of attacks by the Turks. Move on to Bratislava/Vienna around noon, but not before visiting the cliff-hugging Beckov Castle. Arrive back to Bratislava at roughly 3PM– 4PM. Arrive in Vienna at aproximately 5PM.
