Nice trip to Nitra Castle / Church today, less than 1/2 hr from Zlate Moravce. I’m not really a churchy kinda gal but it was beautiful inside.

Nitra Castle is really cool, lots to explore in and around the castle, and the view is impressive. I would recommend a visit to Nitra Castle!

We walked up to the castle overlooking Nitra. The view was outstanding. The cathedral inside the grounds was opulent with wonderful artwork and rich marble work. Definitely worth the uphill walk. Great views of Nitra.

Was a cool castle tour, there's an awesome beer garden at the base of the hill that serves cold beer at super cheap prices.

Castle on the hill is a dominant feature of the town. Nice walk up the hill. We were first time travelers with a dog. Even though it is a tiny dog, you can put in a big purse, no entrance beyond the castle main door.
