For any stranger comming to this city it is unusual view, just above main city´s square on the rock, there is a true gem among castles. Take the steep climb and explore the castle´s entire complex, it is worth of it. Very popular in Slovakia too, and for people living in Trencin it is a source of proud. History of... More

An ancient castle on the hill top. Be prepared to climb a lot of steps. The views are good and the castle itself has been well preserved. The surrounding area is a good summer day out but most places are shut in the winter and there isn't a great deal there. Worth a visit to Trencín for the highly unusual... More

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
