Very nice! Clean, tidy environment, this is what this iconic monument deserves! The coffered ceiling is amazing. And I say this not because my dear son has confirmed here, but without the pastors, this place would not be what it is. It was good to come back here!

Very nice church! We were there at 11 a.m. on Sunday and it was just worship! The pastor greeted me kindly and the congregation was direct. The living history, colors and shapes are beautiful!

Beautiful church in wonderful surroundings. The immediate surroundings of the church are being renovated, so the construction is deteriorating on the outside ... I remembered from the previous pictures the larger surrounding water surface, in addition to less water, the aquatic plants also give the building a different character from the outside, but it is still beautiful ...

The building, although spoiled in its original image, has retained many of its original Gothic features and several distinctive decorative elements of Hungarian rural temples. Its value is further enhanced by the natural environment, the backwater around the mound carrying the church. It is a pity that there is no strength to preserve it, and in addition to the general drying up of the surrounding agricultural areas, they cannot keep the water of the backwater continuously.

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.
