SK, Šelpice – A Village through Tourist´s Eyes
heading (paragraph): Towns
After visiting Bohdanovce nad Trnavou, we moved across the bridge to the neighboring village of Šelpice, which in the past was famous for embroidery, viticulture, or amateur theater. At present, it offers a view of the neo-Gothic Church of Christ the King dating from 1946, as well as several buildings of small architecture. However, a real monumental gem is the local historic Bridge of St. Jana.
