It was a small yet a good museum. The staffs were very helpful. The Liechtenstein adventure pass was accepted, still it’s needed to show them at the counters.

A lovely discovery: not too large but not too small, enough to fill our 2hrs in a very enjoyable way if you find yourself in Vaduz. This may be an one off opportunity to pet a wolf :D Make sure you check out the temporary exhibition about Pompeii - informative, lively and very interesting. There's also a charming self-service cafeteria with unbeatable prices.

I recently visited their permanent exhibit and Pompeji special show. I spent less than 1 hour in the Museum on Sunday shortly before closing and was treated very courteous and professional by a very friendly staff. I got to interact with staff members who made all the difference through their friendliness. I learnt a lot about the history of Liechtenstein and was impressed by the quality of artifacts on display. I specially like the interaction of artsy objects with historical trivia of all sorts. Not a boring museum at all, and 1 hour was definitely not enough to see it all. The staff was so friendly and apologetic of having to throw me out of museum at closing time that they offered me a courtesy ticket for the following Sunday. Which I refused to accept. The museum visit was in itself worth the while and I will be happy to visit again sometime. I highly recommend the self service walk-in coffee shop. Great pastries, great coffee, great ambience. The museum shop has lots of stuff for every taste...even Pasta Made in Liechtenstein. Great Museum. Great Staff. GREAT OVERALL experience. Keep it up.

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.
