The city of Trnava is located in the central part of Trnavian Highlands. From historical point of view, it is one of the most interesting cities in Slovakia. Lets join us in exploration of this city. Since ancient times, trade routes crossed it, rulers changed and breathtaking sacral buildings were erected.

The village of Zavar is located 8 km from Trnava, on the eastern edge of the Trnava loess board. The first written mention dates from 1255. In the village there are many sacred monuments and interesting objects from history. The most attractive ones certainly include the Classicist chateau, the new church dedicated to the Nativity of the Virgin Mary from 1907 and the birth house of the composer Gejza Dusík.
Ghosts at Bojnice Castle, the spirit of Likava Castle or the treasure at Hrušov Castle. Take the children to Slovak castles and chateaux and introduce them to the history in an interesting way. Only recently did the second part of the Slovak trilogy on children's exploration of castles see the light of day - the attractive publication "Castles for Children".
South of Trnava (13 km) by the Gidra stream lies the village of Voderady. In the past, it belonged to the Bratislava county, but for the time being it is part of the Trnava region.
In the outskirts of Slovakian metropolis, an important National Cultural Monument is located. When visiting Bratislava, you would not forget to have a stop also at this spot. Especially during summer months, the visitors will be rewarded with extraordinary outlook, despite the fact that the highest section of the castle is closed for tourists.
