HISTORY TALKS...

Prievaly

EVERY village used to have a lord. Prievaly, in the Záhorie region, belonged to the nearby Korlátko Castle. It is now a village, but it was a small town with its own coat of arms and the right to hold regular markets.

EVERY village used to have a lord. Prievaly, in the Záhorie region, belonged to the nearby Korlátko Castle. It is now a village, but it was a small town with its own coat of arms and the right to hold regular markets.

The church with an interesting protective wall reminds us of the village's more illustrious past.

The cyclist in the picture is worth mentioning. During the First World War, the bicycle was rather a novelty in villages. Just a decade later, photographers' preference had already shifted to the first cars.
