 Attraction highlighting: Pálffyovský kaštieľ

Priding itself as the center of Záhorie region, Stupava is the town with lively cultural and social calendar. This small historical town is located only a few kilometers from the Slovak Capital Bratislava which makes it an ideal place for short weekend break, afternoon trip or light lunch with friends in the town center. Members of the local community have been organizing many interesting events which soon became very popular for visitors of all ages. These cultural, social and sporting events include following:
- Folk festival known as ''Slávnosti kapusty'' (The Cabbage Festival) which takes place in early October each year
