What travellers are saying
- This place is amazing! First, the climb up to the castle is steep! There are signs and a couple of ways to get there, just follow the HRAD/castle signs All the signs are in Slovak,English and German. I signed up for big tour and it was well worth it as I got to see a couple of castles within the complex that are not accessible to self guided tourists. I really lucked out -as they were having a huge wine fest the next day, the place was pretty empty and I was the only one on my tour! The guide speaks English, in fact he's an English teacher. He is extremely knowledgeable! The castle itself is a walk through time -beginning in Roman times. There are so many interesting artifacts, including a mammoth jaw and teeth! It is the third largest castle in Slovakia. Now to the details: there are a LOT of stairs, and the ones to the tower are steep, narrow and high. The view, though is well worth the climb. I hope you will visit this amazing castle and the sweet pedestrian zone filled with lovely cafes and great views of the castle looming overhead. It is only an hour (fast train) hour and a half (slow train) from Bratislava. It is an easy walk from the train station through a park to the main street.Written 6 October 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- The name of this fountain refers to a Vodnik, which is a type of Slavic male water spirit with the body of a man and the face of a frog. The fountain has an innovative and creative design. The centrepiece of the fountain is a sculpture of a well and a Vodnik has climbed over the top, spitting water from his mouth. Great for for children who love to dodge the "spit"Written 25 October 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- This was a highlight of our trip, the Christmas market here in Trencin. The public area would be attractive at any time, but it was magical with the stalls of food, drink, and crafts.Written 15 January 2020
- An interesting way to access the church. As you can see from the picture its an enclosed step-way. Its not too long but if you are elderly and have trouble with steps generally, you may want to take it easy if you are going to attempt it. But there is a handrail if you need it.
Once you reach the top the church itself is very pleasant but the views across the surrounding countryside are more impressive. You can literally see for miles, with all the different coloured fields with various crops, the railway line and other sites.Written 31 March 2017
- Sturovo namestie is a public square in Trencin. There's the usual array of cafes and restaurants in and around the square. The original square was for holding cattle and grain markets, which gave rise to its name - Cereal Market. The centre of the square a cute little fountains called vodníka Valentína, which features a type of male water spirit from Slovak myths.
The square is pleasant enough, but I wouldn't go out of the way to see it.Written 25 October 2019
- A bit shorter than expected, but worth it. A small building, where the city executioner used to live.Written 15 April 2020
- This shopping mall is realy good designed, you feel like you are on a walk and you just wander between different shops. There is place to eat some fastfood, the playground, fitness center, lot of different clothing shops, shoes shops, book shop, grocery etc. I can really find there what I need.Written 29 August 2016
- Exterior of the church is not very distinctive but the interior offers beautiful example of a typical baroque church. Due to it's location and due to the colors of walls it looks bit dark. But when your eyes will be used to less light you will enjoy all details of this local gem.Written 3 January 2018
- If you are in Trencin you should make a quick stop in the Hotel Elizabeth to see this piece of history. As mentioned, you will need to take an elevator in order to view it through the glass.Written 15 January 2020
- The building of synagogue in Trencin is impressive and although in very bad condition and calling for a maintenance still beautiful and worth it a short stop. Unfortunately it is not open for visitors and can only be watched from outside.Written 26 June 2018
- The Plague Pillar is located in the central Trencin and is a great place to meet friends and to take a view of the castle day or night. Your visit can be short or you can sit on one of the benches around the monument relax and enjoy the beautiful city. This is also one of several ideal meeting places within the city.Written 15 April 2016
- We were lucky to see this church as it seems that most churches in Slovakia are closed. They had just had a service, so we were able to have a quick look round. A beautiful small church, nicely designed inside and the views from outside over the town are also good. Follow the covered stairway down to the town afterwards for a change!Written 4 November 2019
