Novadays in the colorful centre, known as Mierové námestie/Peace Square, you can see the central baroque Column of the Holy Trinity, a lot of outdoor cafés, restaurants, old churches and nice domestic houses.
The city is dominated by a majestic castle , which is one of the largest in the country.
The Castle was built in the 11th century on the site of a Moravian fort and was the seat of the Hungarian regional Royal authorities. It acquired its characteristic silhouette in the 13th century, during the reign of Máté Csák, known as the “Lord of the Vág and Tátra”.
Trencsén museum utilises the interiors for its exhibitions of Regional and focal history, historical furniture, weapons, paintings and other pieces of art, a permanent gallery and archeologic collections and findings. The courtyard and buildings of the lower castle can be explored at your leisure but the upper castle may be visited only on guided tour.
