Fine and hoc stop in the area.

Nice circular walk from the carpark to the castle with my dog. Didn't take long to walk round. The car park was nice a quiet when we visited in November.

Delightful little spot, what's left of the Castle is quite small, but you can explore, the setting of the castle is in a stunning area of natural beauty. There is a walled garden next to the castle where you can sit, the sun was out and was very peaceful.

"The Wolf" had a great place to hide after he'd done something nasty. Which was pretty often as I understand.

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.
