Sightseeing in Trencin - what to see. Complete travel guide

First mentions of this city date back to the 2nd century, when the Romans have created a fortified settlement Levkaristos on the place of the modern Trencin. In the beginning of the 11th century a fortress was built on the territory of the settlement. The owner of this place was a feudal lord Slovak Matos Chuck Trencin. The city got its name thanks to this fortress, which has been used as the main military base in Slovakia for many years. In the 15th century Trencin received the status of a free royal city. It was officially added to the country's territory only three centuries later.
A strong fire and war destroyed the majority of the city’s historical monuments. However, a few of them have survived, and today thousands of travelers come to Trencin to admire its beauty. In the center of city lies Mierove nam Square. In 1712 here was installed a monument named Plague Column. This monument is the reminder of the tragic events of the early 18th century, when hundreds of the city’s inhabitants have died from plague. A small alley starts in the western part of the park. The alley will bring you to one of its landmarks - the city gates. These gates are the symbol of the old city. They were built in 1534.
You can see a synagogue nearby. Currently the building undergoes restoration - the shrine was damaged badly during World War II and so it was in ruins for a long time. The majority of the architectural ornaments and stained glass windows are permanently lost, but some of them have been saved. To the south of the square you will find Farsky church. This magnificent building is a unique combination of Renaissance, Gothic and Baroque as its construction has lasted for several centuries. However, Trenčín Castle remains the main attraction for tourists. Nowadays Museum of History has been opened in the halls of the palace. The atmosphere of some rooms has completely preserved from the time of construction. This is one of the most important historical monuments in Slovakia. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
Walking down Matushovaya Street, you can see the Hangman’s House. Many incredible legends are associated with this historic building. It is the only medieval house that managed to survive on the territory of the city. During the 16th and 17th centuries, a municipal executioner resided in this house. There was a dungeon in the basement where prisoners had been waiting for an execution. Nowadays, a thematic museum occupies lower levels. Rooms on the top floors are used for temporary exhibitions. Local residents and museum staff believe that ghosts inhabit the old house.
A bright baroque monument is the Church of St. Francis Xavier, located next to Peace Square. The construction of the church began in the middle of the 16th century and lasted for almost a hundred years. In the early 18th century, the interior decor was completely destroyed by a fire. Many unique religious values were destroyed. By the end of the 18th century, the church was completely restored, and has remained unchanged since then.
The Zupny Dom is definitely worth highlighting among other historical sites. It was built in the second half of the 18th century and provided a location of the County Office. Nowadays, the historic building houses the Trencian Museum - the main city's cultural institution. Its collection includes gatherings of valuable historical, archaeological and ethnographic items, as well as works of art of different periods.
The Velka Yavorina mountain is popular among lovers of hiking. There is a wonderful viewing platform on its top. It will be nice to walk around and admire the panoramic view of the city in a warm season. In summer, excellent festivals and thematic events are held in the open areas. In winter, the mountain area turns into a popular ski resort, which will surely be appreciated by fans of winter entertainment.
Popular Nimnitsa thermal resort is located in the immediate vicinity of the city. It is worth a visit for every lover of spa treatments and wellness. The opening of the thermal center took place in 1959, after the accidental discovery of a valuable source of mineral water. Now, the thermal resort is distinguished by a modern infrastructure. There are beautiful lakes and other natural sights next to the complex.
