Stará Ľubovňa and surroundings


To the north from Stará Ľubovňa is situated the village of Hraničné, established on the hillbillies´ (i.e. people living in backwoods) right from the late 16th century. In the village is the wooden Church of Virgin Mary from 1785 to be seen. It is said that the one-nave´ building with the polygonally closed presbytery and the square tower were transported from the close village of Jarabina. The church´s furnishing is very valuable as it contains the ancient altars from the Stará Ľubovňa church from the 14th to18th centuries. An especially noteworthy is the Renaissance relief with the scene of the Annunciation from about 1521. It shows the oldest preserved picture of the Ľubovňa castle. The Gothic sculpture of Saint Nicholas made in 1360 is placed on the lateral altar of Saint Nicholas.
