Trenciansky Hrad reviews
Beautiful historical castle set in a beautiful town. Well worth a day trip to experience both castle and town. Great photo opportunities. No need for a tour guide as many signs were multilingual.

It was a fun half day out with the family. We took the tourist train to the top entrance then walked down so there wasn't too much walking uphill but lots of stairs within the castle. It was worth it when you were then rewarded with the stunning views.
Impressive, preserved castle. Should be on the list of castles to visit around Slovakia. Perched on top of a hill overlooking the town. You have a lot of amazing panoramic views of the center as well as a great panoramic view of the region.
