Stará Ľubovňa is a town in the Prešov region in eastern Slovakia. Most Slovaks do not know at all about what you will find in Stará Ľubovňa and why it is worth visiting this place. This city is known mainly for its beautiful open-air museum and historic castles. In addition, it is also surrounded by beautiful nature and will please not only the enthusiasts of monuments, but also those sports tourists.
Stará Ľubovňa Castle
Who would say that in such a small town as Stará Ľubovňa there is such a beautiful castle. This castle definitely belongs to the most beautiful and visited castles in Slovakia. It is really scenic according to the surrouding Slovak nature.
Ľubovňa open-air museum
Stará Ľubovňa open-air museum brings us closer to the life of our ancestors in the village. The whole building consists of 25 mostly wooden houses and one wooden church.
There are several wooden churches in Slovakia, 9 of which are included in the UNESCO world list. These wooden churches were originally built without the use of a single nail, but today there are already nails added to preserve the sights. This wooden church in the Ľubovňa open-air museum is also one of the most important in Slovakia, and inside you will also find a golden iconostasis.
When visiting Stará Ľubovňa, don’t forget to stop at the local hut, where you can enjoy traditional Slovak dishes such as bryndza dumplings, pies, cabbage tassels and other specialties.
Personally, this city surprised me very nicely and for Slovak travel enthusiasts, Stará Ľubovňa must undoubtedly be on the list of places to visit. If you are also interested in visiting other interesting places in Slovakia, I recommend the nearby.iconic town of Bardejov.
