Amazing historical site with unique natural views
Oct 2019 • Family
A fine historical castle currently undergoing extensive restoration works.Quite a steep hill to climb to reach the castle ruins.Well worth every effort.The views from the top most viewing balcony are amazing.

Weekend in trenciansky kray
Apr 2019
Very amazing and beautiful place! The castle has been built in the 1200ac and is situed in the mountain. after 2km walking you can see panoramic area of Povazska Bystrica and the river VAH. The only problem no area for refreshments, so you've to provide a bag with fresh water, sandwich and beer :))))

Ruin, but still improve by reconstruction
Oct 2018 • Family
The nice ruin is located on the rock above the village Považské Podhradie. Castle is in permanent reconstruction, so year by year is nicer and bigger too.Because is located on top of rocks there is a nice view from there to around. For better view now is there mounted binoculars.I can recommend for all people, including families with children, a trip from the parking to the castle takes about 60 minutes (with children)

Old ruins
Apr 2018 • Couples
Very far away from the city centre. Nothing much to see around. Probably good place to have a picnic nearby.

A nice family trip, but the castle just a ruin
Jul 2015
The ruins of Povazie castle can serve as a lovely day trip with friends or family. Just bring some food for a picnic up there and enjoy very nice view of the valley.

Považský hrad - (ruins of the castle near Považská Bystrica) is great place for walking. The most stunning thing is the view.
