What an amazingly beautiful lock.... ?++++ We only viewed it from the outside and really enjoyed the very beautiful and well-kept gardens...???

The Heringastate, or also the Poptalot, is a relatively small fortress, but the beautiful interior and certainly the very enthusiastic narrating guide made it an unforgettable experience. Daily and hourly guided tours only in July and August. Highly recommended. Thanks again to our guide, we really enjoyed it.

Beautiful castle near the highway. Nice to stop and take a walk. Admire the well-kept castle garden. A gem in the area which is already visible from a distance. It's great that it's so quiet there!

Very nice lock, but unfortunately was not open. The garden made up for everything. What a beautiful old chestnut can be found here

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.
