Foundation and development of the town

The evidence of the first settlement comes from the Stone Age. Slavic tribes settled this area at the end of 5th century and the beginning of 6th century. A settlement with pottery from post Great Moravian period in Kvasovec locality and two settlements of Slavic ancestors in Hustikom locality (Velky Kolacin) were found.

DubnicaThe oldest written record of Dubnica is included in a document from 1193. It is written that Dubnica is a heritable property of brothers Vratislav and Piskin. The next record comes from 1276 when Samson and Jacob, sons of Cepka (Vratislav's son) sold Dubnica to their sister's husband Oltuman. The document is significant because of the record of a church devoted to St Jacob the apostle. Only a few towns have record of the existence of a church and its inauguration from 13th century.

When Dubnica stopped being a yeoman village and the property of Oltuman's offspring is unknown. Historians assume that the Oltuman family died out in the 15th century because they know that Dubnica was a property of Trencin Manorial estate from 1439 to the end of feudal era.

At the end of 16th century a count Stefan Illeshazy bought Trencin estate (including Dubnica) from Rudolph II for 201 065 thalers.
