The Expression Title "Discover the hidden treasures of the Trenčín region" suggests that the regional tourism organization will, in its presentation, uncover the hitherto unseen secrets of the Trenčín region. As the first treasure that has been hidden underground for several years, the KOCR Trenčín region has introduced a new underground groundwater project. Up to 150 meters of mysterious passages, which Alžbet Báthory itself has passed, has the great potential to attract tourists to the Trenčín region. Čachtice underground at the fair was presented by the Chairman of the Agricultural Cooperative (PD) Čachtice Jozef Čarada and members of the Civic Association On the Castle. "It's the work of volunteers who work on his day-to-day work. All of you are inviting you to these mysterious spaces, "said Charada.

Another treasure perceived only by the public in the Trenčín region is mountain farming. Although the Trenčín region is not a typical mountain region, through the "Bačova cesta" project, which connects the chalets in the Trenčín and Žilinský regions, these localities also get to the attention of the local inhabitants. "I am very glad that the cultural heritage of our ancestors can be promoted in this way. The members of the Bačova cesta project are currently 10 subjects, 2 are from the Trenčian region, "said the chairman of the civic association Bačova cesta Ľudovít Urbanovský.

So, we will be able to evaluate in the next year that the Trenčiansky Region is attracting more and more tourists. "
How do cultural sights contribute to regional tourism?
As part of the accompanying program of the Region Tour Expo 2016, the KOCR Trenčín Region organized a conference entitled "Cultural Monuments as an Instrument for Development of Regional Tourism." Experiences in the management of historic buildings came from the experts from Slovakia and the Czech Republic, the Slovenian Tourist Center Based in Prague.
Attractive events for visitors and marketing activities of the Trenčín Castle, dominating the Trenčian region, was presented by the deputy director of Trenčiansky Museum in Trenčín Tomáš Michalík. The director of Oravský Múzeum, based in Dolný Kubín, Mária Jagnešáková, which is also headed by Oravský hrad, pointed out that the very existence of ancient castles to attract tourists is not enough. What attracts and revives medieval castles is an interesting event for different ages.
Ján Svoboda, President of the Association of Historic Hotels in Slovakia and Secretary General of the Association of Historic Hotels of Europe, has come to share his experience with the reconstruction and management of historic buildings. Under his leadership, he managed to restore the glory of two objects within the Trencin region - Hotel Elizabeth in Trenčín and the Zelená faba swimming pool in Trenčianske Teplice. The attractiveness of another historical hotel and years of experience in the tourism sector was presented by Jozef Provázek, director of the Thermia Palace Hotel in Piešťany.
Martin Krčma, the castellan of the Archbishop's Palace in Kroměříž, drew in his contribution how the registration of the monument on the list of UNESCO's historical heritage influenced the visit of the Kroměříž castle and its adjacent gardens. At the end of the seminar, Michal Kura from the Slovenian Tourist Center in Prague presented the well-known and less well-known tourist sites of Slovenia and the most visited cultural monuments.
Speeches by individual speakers, representatives of professional institutions, museums, tourism organizations or private subjects have shown that the potential of cultural monuments to attract tourists to the regions is enormous. The effort to preserve, enhance, reconstruct, or use historical objects for a purpose other than the original is very demanding and requires a lot of money. All of these activities, however, contribute to the protection of cultural heritage, and therefore deserve public recognition and support from state institutions.
