Chyse Castle

Chyše, Czech Republic

Chateau Chyše is situated 35 km east of the famous spa town Karlovy Vary. Its origins date from the year 1169. Over the centuries the chateau went through many changes. It began as a fortified settlement before it was rebuilt as a Gothic castle in the 13th century. In 1578 Chateau Chyše was transformed into a Renaissance chateau before a Baroque-style reconstruction completed in 1708.

Between the years 1856-1858 final reconstruction was done. This time the skilled craftsmen created a neo-Gothic redesign. In 1917, world-famous Czech writer Karel Čapek worked at Chyše as a home tutor.

Although the place is really nice, our experience was not very well. At lunch time they had not two of asked main dishes. The staff was not even nice, we had impression we bothered them. It's a pity, because of nice castle, and brewery. Maybe in the future when we return we'll have more luck. We're sorry guys, but three stars on average only...

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.
