The city of Trenčín is one of the most beautiful in Slovakia. Its most interesting, historical part, can be found east of the Váh River. The dominant feature of the town is the beautiful Trenčín Castle. The life and pulse of this regional town is mainly in the vicinity of the nice Peace Square

City Gate in Trenčín

The beginning of the tour and the entrance to the largest historical center is at the beautiful city gate. Thanks to the high clock tower, it looks really interesting

Piarist Church of St. Francis Xavier

After passing the city gate, we get to the main Trenčín square – Mierová. We will be the first to be interested in the huge Piarist church of St. Francis Xavier

Peaceful square and views of the castle

The center of Trenčín is the really elongated Peace Square. If you want to sit here, the north side is more advantageous, because it has a beautiful view of the local icon – a huge castle

Evening atmosphere on the square

If you are planning dinner, coffee or maybe a beer, it is also best on Mierové náměstí, if you like a busy atmosphere

Kat's house

On the way out, you will definitely be interested in Kat's house – now the Trenčín Museum. It can be seen that the executioner did not feel bad at all here.

Just before entering the castle

Just in front of the castle are these nice defensive towers. A tour of the castle is on a separate trip, which is definitely worth it.
