Trencín has a handsome and compact historic core, comprised of two central squares: a modern one, Stúrovo námestie, and a more traditional square, Mierové námestie, joined by the town's last remaining old town gate, the Dolná brána. Simply choose an entryway onto the square and walk.

To reach the castle, look for steps going up just before you reach the Hotel Tatra toward the end of Mierové námestie, or climb the stairs running off Farská ulica. It's a 15-minute climb to the top, with some beautiful views over the Old Town and Váh river valley.
