Bevtoft Church

Bevtoft, Denmark

Bevtoft Church is located in the heart of Southern Jutland, and began its life as a romanesque chapel, which was expanded to a real parish church in the 1100s. Visit the church and the past, as you see the ancient features.

The vaulted ceiling above the high altar is an octagonal crossed vault, which opens towards the nave in a pointed arch, where the organ is placed. The choir also has an octagonal crossed vault, while the nave has a flat beamed ceiling.

Here you can see a deesis, meaning a representation of the praying Virgin Mary and John the Baptist flanking Jesus dressed in majesty, as well as a First World War memorial.

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.
