Trnava (Slovakia) Vacation Travel Video Guide

Travel video about destination Trnava in Slovakia. Trnava, in south west Slovakia, is well-protected by a three kilometre-long city wall. Under the protection of the sturdy wall, the monastery and church of Holy Jakobus were created in the fourteenth century with the support of the House Of Anjou. The monastery complex was then considered to be one of the largest religious buildings in the country and served as a place in which God could unite the world. The new city centre contains an imposing Neo-Classical theatre and a tower that was built in 1574. From a height of twenty-nine metres, those in the watchtower were able to warn of any threat of fire. The Jewish synagogue was built in 1831, badly damaged during the Second World War and then neglected for several decades. It now contains a cafe, and women's gallery, along with a permanent collection of Judaica. For centuries, the two towers of the Saint Nikolaus Basilica have characterised the city’s silhouette. Built over a period of nineteen years on the foundations of a Romanesque church, it was completed in 1440. Gothic frescoes still adorn its entrance hall and Baroque altars recall the splendour of a then-flourishing religious city. The colossal wall paintings on both sides of the sixty metre long main nave depict scenes of Christian history. Trnava is a true gem of Renaissance and Late Baroque.
