Amazing, beautiful pearl of wooden architecture, but (!) The community does not let in, and even the surrounding area. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, and here it is ... I hope it will not be so

I visited here for the first time yesterday: July 23, 2021. Unfortunately, the fence around, the gate is closed ... On the one hand it is protection from criminals, on the other - visitors can't look in the middle of a temple at least through a window ...

One of the two wooden churches in Transcarpathia that have been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. This church was built without a single nail

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.
