Strecno Castle, Strecno

(4.5/5 based on 50+ 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.

  • For raggoiungerlo there is a small but very fraught climb from the parking lot below. a mix of trekking and visit for fans ... for us it was enough to see him from afar, because these are ruins, more or less similar to other ... better across the street, right near the river.
