The game is a modern and adventurous textbook of history. It is not necessary to install it, only to go online and visit the webpage hradby.trnava.sk.

The principle of the game is very simple. Every statue comes from a different century, but all are connected by one story and one lost key. The key, which was lost by the city gatekeeper Portario, unlocks the Lower Gate.

Find the key

Players must complete several smaller tasks on the way. As a result, they will learn some interesting things about the construction of the walls, the development of Trnava, fires and how this royal town was conquered.

The route of the game leads along the walls of Trnava, which have surrounded Trnava as a Mighty Belt for over 800 years. On the walls, players can find the statues of builders, night watchmen, firefighters, students in love, kuruc soldiers and a mysterious beggar.

Through their stories, players will hear many rumours about the construction of the walls, the expansion of the city, but also battles and large fires. As long as players do not miss any of the clues, they will certainly find the key.
