Trencin Castle and the town were heavily damaged by fire in the late 18th century, and in 1905 the castle was donated to the city.

The town of Trenčín isn’t a big town but clean and peaceful. I love this town. People are friendly and gentle. After this, stayed in a hotel of the city, I went to Devín Castle next morning.
