Strecno Castle, Strecno
(4.6/5 based on 45+ reviews on the web)
Perched on the edge of a craggy sandstone cliff above the Vah River, Strecno Castle once served as an important strategic fort in the region. Access the early 14th-century castle via its imposing entrance gate and wooden bridge. Note its sturdy stone walls, which have been added to over the centuries, and the mix of architectural styles including both Gothic and Baroque features. Visit the castle chapel to see a replica mummy of Zofia Bosniakova, a woman whose remains were found remarkably preserved in the 17th century nearly 40 years after her death. Parking is available below the castle, but you'll need to climb a sizeable staircase up to the fortress.

  • One of the most beautiful, romantic castles in Slovakia, of which there are more than in the Loire Valley! Castle downright hangs above the road. After two years on the plan of the road between Martin and the adjacent lock Make in the mountain tunnel that not only reduce the mezhlu path between the two cities, but will also remove from underneath the ruin of Strečno route affecting this treasure in a destructive way. In the Castle you can stamp postcard local stamp. Original souvenir, agree.

  • Beautiful setting, stylish rooms in the meaning of hunting grounds of the Castle. Staff miserable. On the day of departure, we leave the premises until pointed out that us 7.00. According to the information which we have received in the accommodation, it was up to 11:00. We had facilitated the departure of 10. 15 hot water flow from the shower stopped, by the way, I just sprchoval. If you're looking for style + ++ ++ if + professionalism. These are my experiences with My Castle, your best bet if you try it yourself.
