It's a lovely hike through woods. Some parts of the path are very steep, but even if you're not in a particularly good shape (like yours truly) it's more than manageable. We left the car in the village, in front of the church, and it took us about an hour to reach the ruins on foot. The first part of the path is really lovely, it's mostly in the shade and offers views of lovely fields. The part that goes up through the wood is also very lovely, it's very peaceful and quiet.

Quite a well-preserved building. Solidly marked access hiking trail, perhaps a little neglected.

Wonderful and worth a visit After thirty minutes of easy walking along the hill with a well-marked hiking trail, there is a reward in the form of a long forgotten tower that is so close to Nova Gradiška and so unknown and forgotten.

Trencín Castle

Trenčín Castle is relatively large renovated castle, towering on a steep limestone cliff directly above the city of Trenčín. It is a dominant feature not only of Trenčín, but also of the entire Považie region. The castle is a national monument.

History of the castle cliff dates back to the Roman Empire, what is proved by the inscription on the castle cliff proclaiming the victory of Roman legion against Germans in the year 179.

Today’s castle was probably built on the hill-fort. The first proven building on the hill was the Great Moravian rotunda from the 9th century and later there was a stone residential tower, which served to protect the Kingdom of Hungary and the western border. In the late 13th century the castle became a property of Palatine Matúš Csák, who became Mr. of Váh and Tatras.

Matúš Csák of Trenčín built a tower, still known as Matthew’s, which is a dominant determinant of the whole building.
