Old town of Skalica hides many unique sights and akso one culinary specialty - a hollow pie called the Skalicky trdelnikthat received a European Union trademark in 2007 as the first Slovak grocery product. During your walkabouts in the city you will find many nooks. You shouldn't miss the St George's rotunda, St Michael the Archangel's gothic church built in the 14th century or the St Anna's chapel built in the 15th century. There is a beautiful Art-Noveau house on the sqaure. The house was built in 1905. Also, I recommend you some of local wine cellars, or to try red wine the Skalice rubin, a pride of local wine growers.
