It is assumed that the settlement of Hradište was established in the second half of the 9th century under the Lusatian fortified settlement. It was originally built to defend an important trade route from Bánovce to Upper Nitra. A significant landmark is the Romanesque church, built on the original Slavic fort. Its origin dates back to the second half of the 11th century, it is a national cultural monument and it is the only one in Slovakia dedicated to St. Barnabas, the apostle and martyr, who is also the patron saint of the village. The village has a rich cultural tradition, which is preserved in the form of folklore, theater and music. There were several wind music in the village, the most famous of which is the Hradišťanka children's wind music. Together with the majorettes, Akord represents the village at home and abroad, and in 2019 it will celebrate 35 years since its founding.
