The village of Častá in the district of Pezinok is located just over 33 km from Bratislava,

For details about Častá, the surrounding villages, and other JewishGen links:
Overlooking the village of Častá is the medieval Red Stone (Rock) Castle (Červený Kameň)
maintained at different times by wealthy families and the history of the Jewish families
in this area was closely connected to the trading activities of the castle inhabitants.
Two Jewish cemeteries are located in Častá:
one is adjacent to the castle, and dates from the late 1700s,
whilst the other is at the edge of the village, and dates from the 1800s to the 1900s.
