Piestany is located in Trencin, W of Topolcany. The flat urban isolated location has no sign or marker. Reached by turning directly off a public road, access is open to all via a masonry wall and locking gate. 500-5000 19th-20th century tombstones are in original locations. The marble, granite, and sandstone flat shaped stones, finely smoothed and inscribed stones, or double tombstones have Hebrew and German inscriptions. The site is Jewish cemetery only. Adjacent properties are residential. Occasionally, private visitors stop. Vegetation was cleared and stones cleaned. There is now a regular caretaker. Within the cemetery is a pre-burial house. No threats except weather erosion that is a minor threat.
