HISTORY AND PRESENT TIME

You will certainly find it surprising to find a microregion rich in natural and cultural beauties near the city of Bojnice. Do not hesitate and come to discover interesting sights, neat villages, forests with creeks and peaceful places endowed with beautiful scenery.

The microregion of Medzihorie was established on September 4th 1998 as a group of villages Horná Ves, Oslany, Radobica, Veľké pole a Veľké Uherce. The area of microregion is delimited by the borders of the cadastral area of particular villages. The microregion is located on the border between the Trenčín and Banská Bystrica region, at the border of the district of Prievidza (village of Horná ves, Oslany, Radobica), Partizánske (Veľké Uherce) and Žarnovica). The border of the microregion continues through the mountain range of Tríbeč and Vtáčnik and through the area of lower Nitra and Basin of Horná Nitra.The highest mountain is the peak of Buchlov at an altitude of 1040.5 m above the sea level in the mountain range of Vtáčnik. The area of our microregion is located in a large protected area – Protected area – Ponitrie. In the the protected area of Ponitrie, you can see the nature reserve Dobrotín rocks, which represent a dominant feature in the area of the region and are frequently visited by tourists. Furthermore, the area is endowed with the Dobrolín cave, which is 26 meters deep, and is interesting due to the incidence of invertebrate. What is worth mentioning is the protected limestone cave Veľkopoľská, which is located in Veľké pole.  

 

The rich history of villages is evident in churches and crosses reminding people of both tragic and joyful events. The visitors can enjoy an array of nature and cycling trails. The May of 2002 witnessed the opening of the 44-km long Cycling trail Medzihorie. Local forests attract a large number of mushroom pickers and tourists from all over Slovakia and foreign countries as well. If a tourist craves for other forms of relaxation, he/she has several options at their disposal such as horse riding and other forms of sporting activities.  

 

FAMOUS SIGHTS


The Church of St. Michael Archangel

The church was built in 1332 in the gothic style on older basements. It was rebuilt in renaissance style in 1669, when a side chapel was built to the church. A single-nave building with a polygonal seal of the presbyterium and reconstructed tower.

The Manor House

One of the dominant features of the village is the manor house built in 1622 by the order of Michal Bošány and his wife Margaréta during the Turkish invasion. The manor house was originally built as a renaissance building, but was rebuilt in baroque style in the 18th century. In 1860 it was completely rebuilt in romantic-neogothic style with the preservation of the part of the ground floor rooms.

It is a 4-wing building built around a rectangular arcade yard with towers on the corners.     The facade of the building is segmented by neogothic architectural elements. The double-tract ground floor has a neogothic chapel and richly decorated portal. On the second floor there are representative rooms with wooden facing and prototypal parquet. The romantic knight hall with busts of knights on the walls.

In the interior, the tapestry placed in the ceremonial hall represents the king sitting on the throne and surrounded by a large number of figures. The relief portrait of the barone Thonet is from 1904 by P. Breithut. The rococo style frame comes from the second third of the 18th century.

In 1865 the manor house was purchased by the family of Thonet, which owned the house until the end of the World War II. At present the manor house is owned by one of the descendants of the family of Thonet. Nowadays, it is inaccessible to the general public due to reconstruction.
