Less than 8 such from Trnava, in the central part of the Trnava Uplands, lies the village of Bohdanovce nad Trnavou. This medium-sized village is immediately adjacent to the villages of Šelpice and nearby to the villages of Boleráz, Dolná Krupá or Špačince.

The village with a rectory is remembered in the years 1332 to 1337. Several monuments have been preserved here from that time. Among the most important are the local church, late Baroque chapel, rectory, memorial to the victims of the war, a brick bridge, as well as the building of a primary school from 1914.

We will be the first to visit the chapel of St. Jan Nepomucký, which was built by the parish priest Ján Salava. During the construction of this tabernacle, material from the wall was used, which was obtained during the expansion of the cemetery. In the tower of the chapel there is a bell from 1803 and in the glazed nice above the entrance there is a statue of a saint.

At the end of the main street is the impressive Church of St. Peter and Paul. The sacral building was built in the 14th century in the Gothic style, after damage by artillery fire it was repaired after a year, and finally in 1939 a more comprehensive reconstruction and expansion of the church took place. Old-New Church of St. Peter and Paul were consecrated in 1940 and, thanks to its uniqueness, it became a national cultural monument. The church has a mission cross with the years 1940, 1990 and 2010. Behind the church you will find a cemetery with stone crosses from the late 18th century. There is also a central stone cross from 1807.
