Cickini is an early Christian church constructed in the 6th century AD, maybe at a location of a Roman village that dates to the 1st century. The bishop of Krk used the location as a temporary refuge. It is believed to have been abandoned after the 9th century. In addition to the church there is a 2,500 sq meter residential complex that has yet to be excavated.

The remains of church was discovered in 2002. A small museum dedicated to the site is located in Sveti Vid. The museum contains artifacts that have been excavated from the site, including tablets.

Impossibile to reach safely with car or by walking since it's near the main fast road. There is no adequate parking and no signs and indications for reaching the place from the road. The locals still that don't know much about the location either. Too bad we were not able to reach this historical remain.

Trencín Castle

Trenčín Castle is relatively large renovated castle, towering on a steep limestone cliff directly above the city of Trenčín. It is a dominant feature not only of Trenčín, but also of the entire Považie region. The castle is a national monument.

History of the castle cliff dates back to the Roman Empire, what is proved by the inscription on the castle cliff proclaiming the victory of Roman legion against Germans in the year 179.

Today’s castle was probably built on the hill-fort. The first proven building on the hill was the Great Moravian rotunda from the 9th century and later there was a stone residential tower, which served to protect the Kingdom of Hungary and the western border. In the late 13th century the castle became a property of Palatine Matúš Csák, who became Mr. of Váh and Tatras.

Matúš Csák of Trenčín built a tower, still known as Matthew’s, which is a dominant determinant of the whole building.
