Bojnice Castle Cave

1 rating
The natural travertine cave with a diameter of 22 m and a height of 6 m is located 26 meters below the level of the 4th courtyard. The cave was created by the effect of atmospheric precipitation of water, which flowed here through the crater and external cracks into the center of the travertine mound. The water disturbed and washed away the travertine. She thus created the current circular space of the cave with decorations on the walls.

Bojnice Castle Cave

The natural travertine cave with a diameter of 22 m and a height of 6 m is located 26 meters below the level of the 4th courtyard. The cave was created by the effect of atmospheric precipitation of water, which flowed here through the crater and external cracks into the center of the travertine mound. The water disturbed and washed away the travertine. She thus created the current circular space of the cave with decorations on the walls.

There are two lakes in the cave, which are probably connected with others in other underground spaces, which this travertine mound is rich in.

The inhabitants of the castle must have known for a long time about the existence of a cave, which served as a shelter and at the same time a water reservoir. However, it was not rediscovered until 1888, when during the last reconstruction they cleaned and repaired the castle well. The cave was opened to the public for the first time in 1967.
