Ejby Church is an ancient medieval church, consisting of a Romanesque ship (from about 1150 - 1200) with Gothic east extension, to which, in the late Gothic era (around the year 1500), three extensions were added, namely tower, sacristy and porch. The baptismal font dates from around 1300. It is made of Gothic limestone and is equipped with engraved apostle and saint figures. The altarpiece was painted in 1596 and is of the canopy type with catechism boards. The pulpit, in cartilage baroque, dates from 1625.

Beautiful whitewashed village church, which is a feast for the eyes. The church was built around the year 1150 with a Gothic extension to the east. In late Gothic times (around 1500) 3 extensions were made: tower, sacristy and porch. The church passed into private ownership in 1911

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.
