Your name

I would love to learn more of this castle. I have been told that this was built by my ancestors, and I am very curious. My family tree is getting smaller and I would like to leave some information for them to look upon. How would I go about learning more? I live in Ohio, United States of America. Thank you.

Nice old castle. Stayed in a labor camp for 3 weeks for work on the Oosterschelde dam.

Very nice lock. We have not been inside. The tower of the castle is quite skewed. What is especially nice is the Kabouterbos. Made very nice with all kinds of different performances and funny places, where you really see something happening. A wedding, holiday with a caravan, theater, etc. Also a nice geocache location.

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.
