Actually only wanted to turn around in the parking lot because someone has already complained that it was a private parking lot. There are hobbies. Then please also mark it. I looked again and there was a tiny label on the edge. After all, didn't want to turn around in front of the castle. Would have been more appropriate. For those interested in the castle: Looked closed. So better inform in advance.

You can only see it from the outside, it's privately owned

Nice castle. Unfortunately privately owned. Rude host. Wanted to park with our car and dog in the gravel parking lot behind to go for a walk and were unfriendly sent away. If it's private (we had overlooked the sign, who also thinks that a castle belongs to a private person), that's not a problem in itself, but you can also express your concerns in a friendly manner.

Looks interesting from outside, but it is privately owned so you will not be able to see the inside.

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.
