The former Topoľčany Castle County is not the only attraction that Podhradie can proudly show its guests. Another site of note is the nearby Úhrad Mountain, the history of which reaches back to the Iron Age and the time of the Halstatt culture. During the Great Moravia Empire, Úhrad was one of a group of protective hill forts guarding the routes from Ponitria to Považie, also keeping watch over trade routes passing through the Považský Inovec mountain massif. Úhrad now offers visitors visible evidence of its original fortifications, its earthen ramparts and beautiful views of Topoľčany Castle and its surroundings.
