    It was worth the visit and entry fee to see and feel the place. Not sure how to get to it without a car, and whether it would still have been worth it. But good to escape the city and feel some peace and space at the end of the day.

    Very easy to find.
    Parking is 100m from the caste and costs 7 EUR for the whole day.
    The castle is in very good condition and renovated. You can take self guided tour or guided tour. Price is 11 EUR per person for the Castle and 11 EUR for the Gallery and combined 15 EUR per person.
    Description is in Slovak, they need to put in couple more languages or just English,
    You have a lot to explore both outside and inside, including the garden and cave.
    We recommend the Bojnice Castle.

    It is considered to be the second largest castle in Slovakia and is located at 664 m between the villages of Lietava and Lietavská Svinná. Its origins date from the late 13th century. The castle was most likely built by the Balaš family. In the 15th century, the Bebeks expanded the castle northeastwards. At the end of the 15th century, the owner of the castle was Pavel Kiniži, who oversaw its most extensive rebuilding. The last major owner of the castle was the Hungarian palatine George Thurzo, at the beginning of the 17th century.

    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!

    Due to the Corona virus pandemy, the visit is without a guide for private groups only,but it's worth a visit. Not in many castles there are so many place accessible for visitors as in this one. Receiving a printed guide with a map and descriptions you can start your own adventure 🙂

    We had a lovely walk around the castle & environs. All the many lookout points were lovely. Ongoing archeological research is interesting, too. Grounds were well kept & we enjoyed our visit. There are portaloos onsite & a little kiosk / cafe for refreshments.

    I used to come here as a kid. It went through renovation. You can learn a lot of history from the place and it is kid friendly.

    A museum with a rich and varied collection that is well worth the visit if you have a spare afternoon, it is situated in a scenic park which presents a pleasant place to relax and unwind.

    This town has a beautiful centre with old buildings and a nice park. Nearby there's the castle. You must buy tickets for 3 EUR but it's worths. We climbed to the tower (227 steps) and the view was fantastic. We took lots of pictures (you mustn't take pictures inside). This place has a special atmosphere, we went back in the past.

    The castle was a good place to park, see, and start a self guided walking tour of the city from... It is impressive in itself, but also affords good views of the old town, river and bridges.

    If you are a medieval history - or just castle - freak this is Must Be in Slovakia. If you only likes great views with space to rest and chillout on the grass - still it is Must Be ;) but... check The weather first. 8 euro enter for adult, 20 euro for Group of 4.

    It was our second time to visit this nice town. After the long quarantine we enjoyed walking in this calm historic town. It's a beautiful mining town which lies "under the mountains". (The view is beautiful). It was a free royal city and very rich town in 14-15.th century. It was one of the richest silver mining town of Europe in the past. It's the part of the Unesco World Heritage site from 1993. I liked walking in the old town among the renovated old historic buildings. My favourites: Old and New Castles, Main Square (Trojice) with the Plague column. There are lots of good restaurants and cafes, too.

    The Slovakia Nation Museum is here. Very nice staff. Large collection of paintings, even from Dutch masters. Some sculptures. Varied timelines. From Renaissance to modern day. Quiet. Enjoyable. Easy to tour. Grounds of castle are nice. Worth a look.
