Trenčín is a city in western Slovakia of the central Váh River valley near the Czech border, around 120km from Bratislava. It has a population of more than 56,000, which makes it the eighth largest municipality of the country and is the seat of the Trenčín Region and the Trenčín District. It has a medieval castle, Trenčín Castle, situated on a rock above the city.Names and etymologyTrenčín was first mentioned under the Greek name Leukaristos, depicted on the Ptolemy world map around 150 CE. During the course of the Marcomannic Wars between the Roman Empire and Germanic Quadi, the Romans carved an inscription on the rock under the present-day castle in 179 CE and the place was mentioned as Laugaricio. For long time it was considered the northernmost known presence of the Romans in Central Europe.The first written mentions in the Middle Ages are from 1111 and 1113 . The name is probably derived from a personal name Trnka/Trenka with a possessive suffix -ín. The German, Hungarian and Polish forms are Trentschin, Trencsén and Trenczyn, respectively.
