The fate of the village lay in the hands of the counts and lords of either of the Malé Karpaty castles: Svätý Jur or Plavecký.
One can see the ruins of Plavecký castle on the distant hill in this picture from the 1900s. There used to be a fortified Celtic settlement on the spreading massif next to it.
Sološnica lies in the foreground. Its name comes from a Hungarian expression - széles kút - meaning a "wide well", as this was previously the location of a large natural watering hole.
