We came to this beautiful city to assist to our friends wedding. We had chance to get to know the city, church and Hotel Pod Hradom. All of them were really nice and definitelly worth visiting.

Beautiful castle but a lot of steps. The view is breathtaking. The tour which is obligatory was only in Slovak. They had printouts explaining few rooms but they were tethered to the walls so hard to walk around and see what they were saying. If the tour was not mandatory it might prove worth paying for it.

If you walk through the old town you enjoy an astonishing view over the Trencin castle. It is a pity however that the opening hours of the castle are too short - they close very early in the afternoon so that the businessmen have a very little chance to visit it inside. But it is worth seeing it even from... More

We didn't arrange well enough in advance to schedule an English tour, but we were given English pamplets to read along with the tour guide. It's amazing history and views from the top will definitely impress you! A lot of uphill walking to get to the top, so wear comfortable shoes! :)

It may have been because today is a public holiday, but we were told at 11:30 that we would have to wait until 12:45. The castle looks impressive from below, especially if you view it from the north west. It is impressive from the old town square. The walls and ditches on the otherside show how well this castle was... More

This is a very accessible castle right in the center of this charming town. The interiors are quite interesting but the views over the city are what make it spectacular. The castle and grounds have been excellently restored.

We've been in Trencin only to see the castle, from distance it was AMAZING. On the hill, it was visible from far, far away! You have to climb a little to see th castle. There was something disturbing for me about this castle - there were birds on chains. Huge birds witout possibility to fly, on chains. But the castle... More

The castle has a couple of haves and have nots. It is an impressive building and there are great views at the city below. But should you expect an exhibition, there is really not much to see inside, as the castle has burned out in 1790 and has not been inhabited since.

This is a great castle to explore inside and out, and was easy to just purchase tickets when we arrived with no real planning. The tour was in Slovak, but we had an English booklet which helped, though it is hard to keep up with reading and trying to see everything at the same time. It still enhanced our visit... More

The castle is a very historical place. Really is mandatory to take a tour there! The atmosphere is incredible. The facility is big with several walls. The main tower give you a very impressive view on the top floor
