After the summer tourist season opened by the end of April, the festival bringing ghosts to Bojnice Castle is the next event to lure visitors. Between April 27 and May 13, the International Ghost Festival offers weekend programmes this time united by the idea of “demons within us”.

Called The Lord of Time, the festival hailing ghosts and spirits presents a historical story on a fight against time, personal temptations and fears based on historical events and authentic elements of the human soul seeking peace and redemption, the organisers write on the castle website, bojnicecastle.sk.

The programme, meant for children over 6 years of age and adults, has been created and directed by Michal Récky and Ján Papco. It is performed only in Slovak.
