    The castle is beautiful to look at from the outside. Inside there is little or nothing to see. So not worth the 12 euros paid in two and also had been free guided tour was so boring. Unnecessary driving when the few artifacts and the history of the castle is largely explained by large panels. Plus there's only three rooms with few exhibits the rest is a bare Cross and sketchy spaces. What a disappointment!

    Trenčín is a beautiful city and view from the castle in the US it only clarified. The path to the castle was accurately indicated there is no chance that you would netrafili. The staff were friendly and very friendly reception staff at the Castle, and we našlapali like mad, it certainly was worth it:)

  • Beautiful place, nice people with birds of prey. For 5€ self-service tour with limited circuit. For 6€ guided tour with access to more parts of the castle.
  • Nice castle. They didn't have an English tour. Instead they give you a massive brochure foe you to read whilst the guide explains everything in Slovakian...slightly disappointed in this as i was not the only English speaker. Otherwise it is well worth the climb and the view.
  • Beautiful pkace to visit with family....
  • love it, missing more historic objects
  • Great location. the castle is very pretty and the local town is not only very picturesque but also has everything you need for a tasty meal.
