Have not seen it inside, but considering how far out in nothing it is located, it is a really beautiful and beautiful Kirkegaard in the outdoor area! ?

The church is built of red monk stones and mainly of 2 turns. The oldest is the choir and the eastern half of the ship from 1200. In the cemetery stands a lollandic bell table. It is made of oak wood and covered with horizontal boards from modern times. The altarpiece is from 1590, but has been greatly transformed. In the board is a painting of the sacrament from 1650. The pulpit is from 1627 with depictions of Christ and 3 evangelists carved into wood. Built in the year 1200, stylish: Romanesque & Gothic.

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.
