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.

  • Furlong is spectacular. Two paths lead upwards. One goes through the middle ages the village. You'll need to prepare for a large number of steps. A survey of the castle was interesting. The Guide knew your talking to Captivate.

  • Very nice trip to the history. Gothic and Renaissance Interfaces, a pure architectural style without the effects of later rebuilding. Guided tour of castle is sad because the guide has lack of informations.
  • Wonderful place! At the moment, the entrance to the territory is closed until 31.03.
  • Castle is just beautiful.
  • Very nice castle, too bad it's closed in the winter.
  • 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.
