Thomas was a very good speaker for this very interesting guided tour. The castle has some beautiful furniture and some beautifully crafted pieces. A visit to the very well maintained garden closes this beautiful visit.

Very beautiful castle, facade in very good condition, magnificent chapel, nice guide, presentation a little too close to the messages he wishes to convey, it's a shame because it lacks spontaneity and fluidity. We forgive him he arrived if we understood correctly at the beginning of August he needs this time of adaptation necessary for everyone.

Very beautiful castle, whose passionate owner has maintained the atmosphere, the decoration of yesteryear! The guided tour made by a young student was very pleasant

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.
