Incredibly beautiful church with ancient origins. If you sit at the front, it is unfortunately difficult to see what happened in front of the altar.

On of many white chalked churches that you find around Skåne. The original church was built here already around 1100. The cemetery has some cultural story graves with QR codes so you can listen to background stories. The church is at the outer city border of Lund with a beautiful surrounding of fields and farmlands. A visit can be combined with a walk to Nöbbe mosse. In these areas the final part of the battle of Lund to place along the kävlingevägen 1676. More then 9000 danish and Swedish soldiers died in the battle.

Vallkärra church was built in the 12th century in Romanesque style. The church was renovated in the 19th century by the famous architect Brunius. One of the church's bells hangs today in the belfry at Bosebo church on Kulturen. Those who are interested in military history look south towards Nöbbelöv's church and then see the field where the final battle during the battle of Lund took place in 1676. The Danes entrenched themselves around the church before they burned down Vallkärra village and retreated further north towards Landskrona.

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.
