Description

In the 9th century monks - Benedictines established the monastery of st. Hippolytus in the valley below the hill Zobor. When the Nitranians went to this place, they said, "I'm going to the monastery," but later also "to the institute", "to the infirmary" and now "to the hospital".

Today, there is a hospital and several interesting places in the site of the former monastery - including the monastery ruins. Convenient access is possible by public transport and then by the gazebo you can decide whether you want to go on foot or use one of the cycling routes. You can get the information from the orthophotomap (satellite image of the area) located next to the path leading to the Svorad's spring.
