Bojnice Spa

History

The history of the Spa is closely connected to the history of Bojnice Castle. The first written record of Bojnice thermal springs was found in a document of King Koloman. It dates back to the year of 1113 and is now kept at the Zobor Abbey. In this document the thermal springs in Bojnice are mentioned as fons fervidus (hot springs). As early as that time, the Spa springs were used for healing and curative purposes. Bojnice castle has come a long way in its rich history, from its beginnings at the time of the reign of the King Koloman, through the times of well-known monarchs such as Bela IV, Matúš Čák Trenčiansky, Ján Korvín, the Thurzo and Pálfy families. From among these important feudal landlords, it was Alex Thurzo, a resident of Betlanovce, who founded the Spa in the first half of the 16th century. The first written record about the Bojnice Spa dates back to the year of 1549. Its author, Juraj Werhner, describes it as water tanks with various temperature of water. After the reconstruction of the Spa by Pavol Palffy the document from the year of 1671 says that there were five pools under one roof in the Bojnice Spa. The best bath pool was built up of stone. Other pools were made of wood but they were still stylish and clean. At the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, the Count of Pálfy reconstructed the castle as well as the Spa. Modern development of the Spa began in the 1930s, when the Spa was owned by reputed businessman Ján Baťa. Bojnice aquired the statute of the spa town on 17 June 1959. Since then, the spa treatment has been provided not only for domestic patients, but also for patients from abroad.
