Large medieval castle with beautiful view of Trencin and its surrounding. If you get here go to see The Well of Love and Mathias Tower.

I have always admired this castle when driving on D1 and so as I had enough time on this trip I decided to stop in Trencin for a while and visit it. Because it was a sudden decision I wasn't prepared well, didn't research parking...More
