It is a three-nave Gothic basilica dedicated to Saint Mauritius with Romanesque elements. The oldest part of the church dates back to the 9th century, the time when the city was founded. Its current condition dates back to 1234, making it the oldest surviving building in Ingolstadt.the church has only one tower of 70m, but it is located directly next on the wall of the whistler tower and behind the rathaus. the entrance ia not from the main street so you have to go behind the rathaus and open a big bronze door. inside the columns are majestic and the altars are from old bavarian gothic style.a must visit.

From the outside, the church stands out with its very different towers. They are not placed next to each other, but rather at the ends. Inside, I particularly like the altar, which is decorated in silver and gold, and the colorful stained glass windows behind it.

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.
