As far as true tourist attractions go the town, despite its relative size, is a bit lacking however a trip there will not be a very boring one even with this in mind. The town does feature a historic center where you can admire a series of old buildings, especially churches and a wonderful panorama of the nearby-by Mala Fatra mountains.
The rebuilt old town square is around seven hundred years old and it houses a statue of the Immaculate Virgin Mary as well as the Town Hall and the Church of The Most Sacred Trinity.
The one true tourist attraction that the city boasts is the Budatin castle. The castle was built in the 13th century in order to protect the area because very nearby the Kyusca and the Vah confluence was a place where tolls were collected. The building changed hands a couple of times during its first few decades and then stayed in the same family for more than three hundred years. As time passed various additions were brought to the building in various style so for instance the castle features Renaissance style fortifications build during the 16th century and a Baroque chapel build during the 17th. It is a very interesting place to visit due both to what it offers as far as visual attractions go as well as its extremely rich history.
The entire place offers a particular type of experience atmosphere wise and while the city isn’t as populated by tourist attractions as one might think there are definitely quite a couple of things that you can see and a very interesting countryside to explore with the help of our Zilina car hire services.
