Castle difficult to find. You have to take a narrow path for several kilometers. It is a fortified castle with a dungeon with a dwelling next to it. Attention, this place cannot be visited, even if it is indicated in the guides. It is private property and at the end of the road, there is no place to park and as the property is closed by a gate, it is very difficult to turn around. A dirt track extending the road overlooks the property and provides a view of the castle.

Super well received by the owners who only receive groups. For our Vitalité Stretch Bien-être association, July 13 was our last stretch session and it was a success. 1 hour lesson and an improvised picnic at the foot of the castle. This evening will remain in our memories. Thanks again to the owners

Attention can not be visited because it is a private property. Nevertheless, the charming owner let us have a look around. Very beautiful property, very well maintained castle and superb garden. Absolutely calm and very relaxing. Nice discovery.

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.
