Region Pieniny and Zamagurie


 Attraction highlighting: Church of St.Jodok

Lechnica is situated in the valley of the right tributary of the Dunajec river over village Červený Kláštor on the foot of the northern slopes of the Spišská Magura with a beautiful view of symbol of the Pieniny - Tri koruny (three crowns), in the northeast of the High Tatras in the region called Zamagurie by local people. Village is situated in a protected zone of Pieniny National Park and its northeastern part forms an element of Pieniny National Park. Pieniny National Park is the smallest, but the most picturesque national park in Slovakia. Its extension is 3750ha and is joined together with Pieniny National Park in Poland (2360ha).

Village was founded on the assets of the Berzevicis and on this areas was founded Červený Kláštor, too, called at that time Lechnický kláštor (The Lechnica Monastery). The Monastery was founded by Master Kakaš Berzevici, the heir and at that time owner of almost all assets in the northwest Spiš. In the period of 1329-1563 the Monastery was the seat of Carthusians and in the years 1704-1782 of order of Camalduls.
There is the Church of St Jodok built in the 14th century. Its present-day look is the result of reconstruction at the end of the 19th century. Many sights from the 18th and 19th centuries are placed inside.

Points of interest, remarkables and rarities

back to top

The former agricultural village with preserved elements of folk architecture is being changed to a village where tourism and cottages are developed.
There are many private cottages and boarding houses for recreational purpose. Position of the village out of the main traffic communications in the region, but not so far from tourist attractions creates ideal assumptions for family and individual recreation.

Our visitors can exploit especially these tourist attractions: rafting through Prielom Dunajca, walking or cycling to village Lesnica or a Pole spa town Szczawnica using tourist path is very popular, visit Pieniny National Park in Poland and climb up Three crowns and Sokolica.
At the frontier crossing Červený Kláštor - Sromowce is planned construction of raft for transport of persons across the Dunajec.
