Uhrovec - a picturesque village lying under the majestic Rokoš Hill is exceptional not only for its unique and intact nature, but also for its rich history. The village of Uhrovec is the birthplace of two prominent personalities of the Slovak nation, Ľudovít Štúr and Alexander Dubček.

The birth house of Ľudovít Štúr and Alexander Dubček in Uhrovec is a national cultural monument. The house was originally a Hungarian school with a teaching apartment. The premises were gradually renovated to preserve the authenticity of the cultural monument.

The exposition installed in the hometown of Štúr and Dubček captures the life stories, work and legacy of Ľ. Štúr. It focuses on the permanent performance in our social life and in the systematic commemoration of the work of Ľudovít Štúr in various places in Slovakia.

In November 1995, the third part of the exhibition, the memorial room of Alexander Dubček, capturing significant milestones of his life, was opened. The birthhouse of Ľ. Štúr and A. Dubček in Uhrovec belongs to the Trenčín Museum in Trenčín.
