Strecno Castle, Strecno

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.

  • The tour was nice, but I guess I would enjoy it even more in better weather (way too hot that day). The views from the top of the tower were simply amazing.  more »
  • Nice Castle, which is currently under renovation, but also so was the tour of the Castle very nice and instructive. Interesting there is the castle chapel with very good acoustics, where we also had the opportunity to hear the game on period musical instruments. As an added bonus, wonderful view from the observation tower on the whole area.

  • I have family there, but up to now I chose independently, all day, with friends. The castle is beautiful, the guide was funny, the show is held every 20 minutes, so don't expect too much. The path is either the needs or the road, suitable for strollers. About half way there is a smaller village with drevenicami, where you can peep, you can get archery with bow, a feature there. When you go from a castle, I recommend to go over the bridge to the other side to the hut on the Hill. beautiful environment, there is a definite forest park for children. They are there to have fun there is a House on the stračej, the choduľách, such as footed can walk the animals live and from straw great:) Well done there and the staff is really nice. The way of the hut is on the turn, even the asphalt lake. It is a beautiful Milky green colour. the only asphalt lake in Slovakia. When is 30-35 degrees from the rocks flows and asphalt, it can also be seen on the surface of the water would be enough so a little further towards:) to chat under the Dry is also the old Castle. Feel free to walk throughout the day and consuming nothing but very nice;)

  • Lovely old Castle with amazing views of the surrounding area, a wildlife habitat bursting with local flora and fauna, and a nice little educational medieval village set up outside. Well worth a visit. Closes at 6, last entry at 5pm.
  • Well-preserved medieval castle. It's quite big and has really beatiful surroundings, so the view from the tower is also nice.
  • Lovely place. Not too busy, even on the busiest day of the year.
  • Nice building and guiding service, very impressed.
  • Super bonito ♢
