Jablonové

Jablonové

The village is located on the foothill of the Little Carpathians. The first written reference to this village dates back to 1206, the area was settled as early as the time of Great Moravia. The name Jablonové is said to be derived from wild apple trees that were used as barriers against enemy advances because of their hard wood and thorny branches. The village used to belong to the Earl Alexander and his sons, later to Jakub, the reeve of Bratislava. In the 16th century the owners were the Seredy´s family and then Pallfy´s family. Jablonové village survived Thököly uprising, Turkish attack on Vienna, double burning down by imperial mercenaries and three cholera hits. In the time of epidemic there arose a cholera cemetery for 314 victims, still existing. The historic landmark is the renaissance Roman Catholic St. Michael the Archangel Church from 1561. It was rebuilt in 1894. Other remarkable sights are the Holy Trinity Chapel from 1886 and glass smelting plant remains from the 17th century. The academic painter Ján Želibský was born here (1907-1997).

The Little Carpathian Cycle Route passes through the village.
