White Stone imagine it as the ruins of an early Gothic castle. It lies above Svätý Jura, surrounded by the forests of the Small Carpathians. It was mentioned for the first time in 1271 and was part of the protective system of castles on the western border of Hungary.

The natural circuit of the St. Jura educational trail will lead you alums – a long and high embankment, which was created by the winegrowers by carrying out and digging stones from the vineyards. Stones were usually placed across the contours, along the slope and sometimes they also served as a foundation for the shelters - sheds. 

Northwest of Sväté Jura in the area of the Great Moravian Castle above Neštichom is the Protected Area St. George's Castle. 

Hradisko Neštich was characterized by a powerful defensive system of ramparts and ditches. We learn about it from archaeologists and historians in the 1920s. and we gradually discover that the settlement here dates back to the beginning of the Middle Bronze Age (16th - 15th centuries BC). The findings reveal that a settlement was also built here in the Hallstatt period (8th - 5th century BC) and in the Latenian period (5th - 1st century BC), Celts and Germans found their refuge here during the Roman period and the migration of peoples. (1st - 6th centuries AD). The location also became a home for Slavs - from the 2nd half 8th cent. BC they had fortifications here and formed the Slavic border fortress of Nitra. The fortress reached its greatest growth in the 9th century. With the arrival of the middle of the 10th century, it disappeared and St. Jur was established.
