Trencin castle

on October 4, 2013

Last Sunday I went to the neighbouring town of Trencin (just 30 minutes away by train) to see the castle. It was well worth the visit. The castle is very imposing, built on the hill with some spectacular views over the town and the surrounding countryside. There were some interesting buildings in the castle grounds, and the flowers which had been planted everywhere filled the air with a beautiful scent. The goats posing in one of the towers were also very cute. Being on a hill, the approach to the castle is fairly steep, but not too bad. The admission prices were confusing, to say the least, and I had to pay extra to use my camera, which I always think is a rip-off but I paid it anyway…

Our visit to the castle was followed by lunch at a restaurant in the town (which I’m not going to name ‘cos the service was terrible – an hour’s wait for a bowl of pasta!) and then a couple of margaritas at La Libertad, a Cuban bar which is definitely worth checking out if you’re in the area.

    Oh, so pretty, I have just been there a few weeks ago. The newly renovated hotel at the foot of the mountain has a wonderful cafĂ© with perfect cakes… longing back.
