History of the Senec region
Senec is mentioned in written sources for the first time in 1252 as a villa (village) Zemch. Similar to many other localities of the upper Žitné ostrov and municipalities in the vicinity of today’s Bratislava, in the Middle Ages it was largely influenced by the majority German ethnic group. Local Church of St. Nicholas has been mentioned in written reports since 1323. The site, located on the border between the foothills of the Danube Plain and the Danube Plain, gradually became the headquarters of its surroundings. In addition to the church, the main role was also played by the local weekly markets, documented since 1333, and the trade routes that led in this direction – thanks to them, Senec has been mentioned since 1412 as a station for collecting tolls.
The Senec region is a regional tourism organization established according to § 13 et seq. Act 91/2010 Coll. on the support of tourism, as amended, on the support and promotion of tourism and on the creation of conditions for the development of tourism in the territory of the founders and members with the aim of sustainable development of tourism and protection of the interests of its members.
