The amazing place, where the castle is situated. The castle is situated on the top of 103 metre tall rock over the river Vah. Very beautiful view...

I've been to Strecno several times, and always enjoy each visit. They have tours in English, but you need to plan ahead. Also, be prepared for a hike - both from the parking lot to the entrance of the castle, and then, again, once you're inside. However, it's completely worth every step.

I really like where this castle is situated, it's like from a fairytale :) The view from the top is nice! There is also this little wooden village on the way up and some information boards. The place is well looked after.

An enjoyable half-day spent at Strecno. Tour lasts about an hour, and included a surprise musical performance in the castle's chapel. I'm not sure if this is in tours all of the time, or if I just got lucky on the day. Laminated information sheets are given in a variety of languages, very handy if your guide is speaking Slovak...

The castle is located near a village Strecno not far from Zilina. Two kind of a public transport are from Zilina to Strecno (train or bus). The way to castle has many stairs! The panoramatic views from castle is wonderful (river, village).
