The village of Trencianske Mitice has the history of 805 years and is situated on the southern parts of Strazovska hornatina.
Dividing of the properties in the past was the reason why there were three villages with the similar name in the same area:
  Roznove Mitice
  Zemianske Mitice
  Kostolne Mitice.

Their names all come from the original word "myto" which means a common sort of fee in the past. The integration of these original villages in 1960 has created one bigger village called Trencianske Mitice.

It has got 733 inhabitants (Roznove Mitice - 423 inhabitants, Zemianske Mitice - 176 inhabitants, Kostolne Mitice - 134 inhabitants).
