Bzovík (Hungarian: Bozók) is a village and municipality in the Krupina District of the Banská Bystrica Region of Slovakia.

History[edit]

In historical records, the village was first mentioned in 1135 (Bozouk) when the noble Lampert of Hunt-Poznan founded a Cistercian abbey here. In 1433 Bzovík was destroyed by Hussites and in the mid-15th century by commanders from the Krupina Castle. From 1530 to 1567 it belonged to Žigmund Balaša (Hungarian: Zsigmond Balassa). 1567 – 1658 it belonged to the landowners Fánchy and in 1678 it passed to the Jesuits of Esztergom.
