Great looking castle and lovely location in the heart of historic town of Trencin. Staff offered us help but disappeared and we had to wait for a bit more. Will recommend though!

very lovely city with great castle on top. You can see that they have fair share of tourist. I had a nice walk with my family around it through castle park and there was also a road for baby trolley :)
Great place to visit with spectacular views! Very different architecture compared to other Slovak castles. The castle on the beautiful big rock is situated right in the city centre. The main square underneath offers nice coffee shops with open air terraces and good ice cream, good target to spend a pleasant summer afternoon.
