Tour of Trnávka and Krupský Streams Valleys

This circular tour leads to the most significant sights – churches and manor houses in villages lying in the valleys of Trnávka and Krupský streams. The starting point of the route is the Trnava railway station, from which the route continues northwards along Hospodárska Street and Trstínska road to the end of the town. The first stop is former viticulture village Šelpice with Roman-Catholic Church of Christ the King. Until 1991 the village was part of Bohdanovce nad Trnavou village, which lies on the right side from the road in the immediate vicinity of Šelpice. One of the most significant sights in Bohdanovce nad Trnavou is originally gothic Roman-Catholic Church of St. Peter and Paul.  
Continuing along the first-class road to the north, the route leads to Boleráz, which is a significant archaeological location and belongs to so called Boleráz group. The cultural and historical dominants of the village are the Baroque-Classicistic Church of St. Michael archangel and Baroque Roman-Catholic Church of Nativity of Virgin Mary in its local part   Klčovany. Continuing around the Boleráz dam the route reaches Bíňovce village with the Church of St. Michael Archangel. Trstín is the last village on the way from Trnava through the Little Carpathians towards Senica. The most valuable landmark of the village is the Romanesque Church of Our Lady of Seven Sorrows from 1245 in the Hájiček location. Two local manor houses are also significant objects. The Renaissance manor house originates in the middle of the 17th century and the Baroque one from the middle of the 18th century. One of the village dominants is the Roman-Catholic Church of St. Peter and Paul.

In Trstíne turn right to the second-class road which leads to the Prekážka location. Turning right the route passes through the valley of Krupský stream in south-eastern direction back towards Trnava. In short time the route reaches Horná Krupá village and its Baroque Roman-Catholic Church of St. Nicolas. Proceeding towards south around the water tank Horná Krupá the route reaches one of the biggest villages within Trnava region - Dolná Krupá village. Its most significant cultural and historical sight is with no doubt the classicistic manor house which even today belongs to the most beautiful countryside building of classicistic architecture within Slovakia. The magnificent aristocratic residence of Brunswick family was made famous mostly by Ludwig van Beethoven’s visits. Other “wonders” of Dolná Krupá include large park behind the manor house, classicistic Roman-Catholic Church of St.Andrew, classicistic mausoleum of Chotek family and so called mound as a part of the park. The route from Dolná Krupá leads southwards to the destination, back to Trnava.
