This exceptionally rare postcard from 1901 depicts a church in the town of Rohožník in the Záhorie region. At that time, construction had just finished, and the church was surrounded by mostly empty space. But nowadays, that area is densely developed, and visitors have to search through it to find the church.

Among the town's points of interest was a printing plant, which was moved there from nearby Plavecký Hrad. It was in operation between 1582 and 1854. In the 18th century, an oil company was also located there.

Rohožník was originally a German settlement that gradually became Slovak. Its original name, Rohrbach (Cane Brook), was used long after the change, and traces of its Slovakicized form, Rarbok, remain until today.
