  • This was definitely the Best thing I did in Slovaki. Seamless and pleasant enough train ride from Bratislava. 
  • An incredible place with a touch of history. Definitely worth your visit. Barbora Palace, or a beautiful well of love with an unforgettable, narrated by spirievodkyne. Many events throughout the year, lead to the Castle not only Trenčanov but also a lot of tourists. I can only recommend.

  • From the Castle you will enjoy a stunning view of the city. You can visit the castle with a group and a local guide (unfortunately the Slovak excursion) groups go out every hour.

  • 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.
  • Odporucam navstivit v zime a zakupit velky okruh. / I recommend to visit during the winter and go for a big tour instead of the smaller one.
  • 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.
  • UN ORAS MEDIEVAL SI UN CASTEL IMPERIAL
  • Suggestions and and nice panoramas for a walk
