Around Trnava and Its Suburbs

The tour around the immediate surroundings of Trnava can be started close to Trnava railway station. Take Hospodárska Street until you get at the crossroads with Terézie Vansovej Street, where you turn left westwards. The street continuing behind the town as Kamenná cesta goes through Kamenný Mlyn recreational area. It is particularly in summer months and at weekends that it is full of Trnava people who come there to spend their time of relax. The natural environment full of greenery can be entered along a 15-hectare forest park. The centre of the recreational area is a hotel and a natural swimming pool. Paths around Trnava ponds with rare flora and fauna are places suitable for romantic walks as well as cycling trips. Biely Kostol, which was a part of town until 1993, lies behind the recreational area. The greatest place of interest of the village is a manor house whose original building was walled and rebuilt to a summer residence by Trnava Jesuits. The Roman Catholic Church of Christ the King is also worth attention. At the end of the village, turn right on the second-class road and return to Trnava using Modranská and Ružindolská Streets. Go straight after the roundabout and get to Kopánka part of town using Cukrová Street. Its name is taken from the name of an old town brickyard. The centre of old Kopánka is the Square of Slovak Learned Society, surrounded by a park. Not far from the square, there is the most significant sacral sight of Kopánka – the Roman Catholic Church of Virgin Mary Help of Christians, which is administered by Salesians. Go southwards from the square, taking Špačinská Street, to get to the eastern town fortification, and bypass the town centre along it from the left, taking Hlboká Street. Busy Sladovnícka Street, which changes name to Nitrianska Street behind the railway bridge, gets you out of town. The part of town of Modranka lies at the south-eastern part of Trnava. The most significant sight in Modranka is the Roman Catholic parish Church of the Holy Trinity, which was designed according to Trnava Cathedral. A path from the church runs southwestwards over the Trnávka Stream, continuing up to Zeleneč. Its dominant element is the architectonically interesting Church of the Nativity of Virgin Mary. Zeleneč has become famous for theatricals named Divadlo Z, whose members also included Jozef Bednárik, Zeleneč native and a well-known theatre director. Another stop of the tour is one of the former parts of Trnava – Hrnčiarovce nad Parnou, where a narrow asphalt road leads from the south-east from Zeleneč. The most significant cultural and historical sight of the village is originally Gothic Roman Catholic Church of St. Martin from the 14th century. Take Bratislavská cesta north-eastwards from the village to the finish of the tour in Trnava.
