History

In the second half of the 16th century, the area is colonized by Croats who flee their homes before the Turks advance. The important historian of Hungary Gabriel Kolinovič Šenkvický wrote, based on the data of historians J. Sdegedy and S. Timon , that Šenkvice was founded by Croats between 1544 and 1550. Croatian colonists from Kostajnice and the surrounding area were brought to Šenkvíc by Mikuláš Šubič at the time when the Turks destroyed Kostajnica. In 1594 , other Croatian refugees came, founding a new settlement near the existing settlement near the Sisek stream, which Count Štefan Ilešhazi called Malé Šenkvice, originally named Sisek.

From 1647 the village belonged to the Pálffy family (Pezinok estate).
The surroundings of Šenkvíce were inhabited as early as the Neolithic, and there are finds from the Early Bronze Age as well as from Roman times. The first written mention of the village is from 1256 in a document of the Hungarian king Bela IV. After the Tartar invasion and plunder of Hungary, German colonists came to the territory of the Pezinok estate. The first Germanized name known from the document of the vicar of the Archbishop of Esztergom, Leonardo de Pansauro, dates from 1390, where the parishes of the Bratislava post office are named. Among them is Šenkvice SAMKAWYCH, listed between Modra and Vistuk.

The first church in Šenkvice was built around 1350 in the Gothic style. This probably burned. In its place, Croatian colonists built a new church, which they gradually expanded in the years 1614 - 1619. In 1666, the church was radically rebuilt into practically the form it has today. Simultaneously with the church, they also completed the construction of the walls around the church (defense against Turkish invasions) and closed them with a large gate. The portal of this gate has the year 1682. At the end of the 19th century, Šenkvíc declined and only at the beginning of the 20th century, with the emergence of new job opportunities, did they develop and grow again.

On October 19, 1845, the Šenkvice - Pezinok railway line was put into operation.

sights
There are several sights in the village. One of them is the Roman Catholic Church of St. Anne from 1584, which was originally Gothic, later rebuilt with Renaissance and Baroque alterations. The fortification system around the church with corner bastions is built in the Renaissance-Baroque style. Other sights are the statue of St. Urban in the vineyards from 1723 (restored and ceremoniously rediscovered in 2006), the statue of the Holy Trinity from the early 20th century and the statue of St. John of Nepomuk. The chapel from 1888 is dedicated to the Virgin Mary of the Seven Sorrows.
