Very dilapidated monument, closed to the public. A heritage that is not highlighted and its occupant the BNF obviously does not take care of it. It's deplorable...

Very pretty park around the castle with very old trees. You can observe garden creepers, tits and squirrels.

Very difficult to keep such a building in good condition! Very nice house (exterior views only) but needs a severe renovation.

Jeanne was very welcoming, the gite was great with very large grounds providing plenty of space for the children to play. The pool was well used and we enjoyed the open fire on the one wet day we had. We loved our week there and would go again.

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.
