One of the most precious and most important monuments of our ancient past is the archaeological site of Molpír discovered on the hill with the same name.

On the mysterious hill of the Little Carpathians called Molpír, the people of Kalenderberk, also known as Hallstatt culture, built their fortified settlement in the 6th century BC. The name is derived from the discovery of their extensive burial site in the Austrian town of Hallstatte.

Fort consisted of three courtyards protected by stone ramparts. More detailed information can be provided on the information boards on site. Several mounds were uncovered at the site of the archaeological site, where rare objects such as jewelery, knives, and skeletal remains of humans were found. Archaeological research has shown that in addition to the settlement in the early Iron Age, the Hallstatt, the Celts and Slavs also resided here, making the Molpír hill fort one of the oldest forts on our territory.

The site was restored with a monument restoration and presentation of the fortification, gate, cult building and cistern sections. The text on the boards of the educational trail informs visitors about the individual objects.

A trip to the Molpír hill is a pleasant walk for families with children, as well as for tourist enthusiasts and is part of the Smolenický kras educational trail, to which you will be led by a blue sign.
