The majestic castle fortress towers on a rock over the river Váh. In the past long gone, Strečno Castle was considered as the safest fortress of the region. Its establishment is assigned to the “Master of Váh and Tatras” Matúš Čák. A story associated with the Strečno Castle is the personal story of Žofia Bosniaková. Primarily, it is a story of her love for her husband, God and the poor. Intact remains of her body were found in the Castle crypt and transferred to the church in Teplička nad Váhom. In April 2009, they were subject to vandalism and destroyed. A replica of her mummy is located in the castle chapel. From the castle rock and the path above the castle you will have a magnificent view to Strečniansky mountain pass, Domašínsky meander and bigger part of Žilinska hollow basin.
