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


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.
