Really enjoyed the castle, the view, the small shop and everything else, until we noticed the birds of prey that were held captive. There were probably around 10 different kinds of birds, among them at least one eagle. This was horrible to see, and I really hope that they will change this.

Trencin and the castle are a great day trip from Bratislava. Trencin castle is a bit of a hike to get to the top but you can take your time we did it with our 5 and 3 year old grand children. All along the way are great photo ops. Trencin is a clean and quaint little town. Things are... More

Trencin is a lovely little town just an hour and a half away from Bratislava. The castle is the third biggest in Slovakia, its beautiful with a very interesting history. Although the tour is primarily done in Slovak there is alot of written information in English and it is definitely a worthwhile visit.

The Castle is a must thing to visit in historic City of Trencin. Located majestically on high rock, is an eye opener, how do they build it ? The castle Tower offers lovely views of the whole city and surroundings. The water well is impressive, and it is called "Well of love", as the story said. Highly recommending.

This amazing castle is located up on the rock right in the middle of nice small town. It's a short walk to get there, you can choose from either short or long guided tour. Just be careful, as in winter guided tour is usually only in Slovak language. You have to pay entrance fee, it's quite cheap, but be prepared,... More

Very nice castle of Trencin. Looks monumental from the city streets. Not a long jorney from the city centre. Well worth visiting. Was not inside but looks great from outside. Was there in the summer of 2008.

The climb up the hill from Trencin to visit the castle is well worth the effort. Lots of reconstruction over the years, but really interesting, great views over the city.
