Rising above the historical city center, Trencin Castle rests on foundations dating back to the Bronze Age. Visit the castle, built upon a rocky hill, and explore its series of stone fortifications that themselves date back to the 11th century. Admire its sturdy construction, featuring bulky defensive towers topped by pointed roofs and surrounded by thick stone walls. Inside the castle, visit the local museum, where you can gain more in-depth knowledge about the history of the castle, town, and region itself through displays featuring arms, armor, household items, paintings, and other remnants of the castle's time as a noble residence.
