  • Beautiful castle in Trenčín. It is easy to reach and you can buy tour with different languages. Many concerts are held at the castle during the summer. There is Beautiful views from castle walls...
  • Terribly boring place with an awfully boring tour guide. Definitely one of the most boring castles in Slovakia. The only thing worth going for is the amazing 360 view from the highest castle tower. Unfortunately you have to take and suffer through the tour to get there.
  • Must see, if you are in Trencin. Castle is in very good state, with exhibitions and other entertainment on its premises. View from castle tower is amazing.
  • Good place. Amazing history. Great 360 views from top. Need to walk also in the city to enjoy the views of castle.
  • I absolutely adore the experience. It offers a lot more plentiful than one would imagine. 11/10 would visit again
