Castles in the Považie region are empty due to the extraordinary measures currently in place, and owners are losing the income from entrance fees. They are using the closure of the castles for administration, planning and repairs.
Trenčín castle under the administration of the Trenčín museum enjoyed a record number of visits in 2019. More than 152,000 people visited it. This year, the same number of visitors cannot be expected, according to Peter Martinisko, director of Trenčín Museum.
In March and April alone, the castle will lose about 13,000 visitors. In May, there could have been 17,000 visitors.
