Trenciansky Hrad Reviews
This is a must if you visit Trencin; the tours are in Slovak, but you can read about the castle and then see many interesting parts on your own. It is a bit of a walk uphill, but the views are... more »
This castle definitely belongs to TOP 10, or maybe TOP 5 in Slovakia. The road up is bit challenge but worth for the view. more »
Great castle. A bit pricey to get in, but worth it. You can get to the top of the tower for some 360 views of the area. Super narrow stairs and tiny doorways get you and idea how it was back then. If you are driving through the area, definitely worth to make a stopover and stretch your legs!
Castle is impressive but for some reason they have wild birds like hawks, eagles and owls attached from their legs with 20 cm rope to the ground at the inner court yard. They cant fly or move much at all. So cruel! This is probably supposed to be some sort of tourist attraction but to me it was the saddest thing I've seen in Slovakia. I hope this will change soon!
