NKP Pomník sv. Cyril and Methodius - Branč

National cultural monument The monument to the Slavic heralds of Saints Cyril and Methodius in the cadastre of the village by the roads and vineyards dates from 942.

On a minor road from Branč to Štefanovičová, on a gentle hill. The author of the sculpture is an important Slovak sculptor František Gibala. It was created to order by the then Nitra mayor Štefan Haššík. He had the statue erected on a hill in the area of the then border village of Branč, near the border, on the grounds that the holy brothers Cyril and Methodius rested on that place after a strenuous journey to Nitra. Many people have no idea about this sculpture, located in a relatively atypical place, but they will certainly not be disappointed if they visit it.
