“Pozdravujem vás, lesy, hory, z tej duše pozdravujem vás!“ (“I greet you, forests, mountains, with all my heart I greet you!”). Everyone knows these words from the poem of the famous Slovak poet Pavol O. Hviezdoslav. Did you know that the author drew his inspiration to write the work “Hájnikova žena” from this place? The building of the gamekeeper’s lodge under Babia hora in Oravská Polhora was built on the place of an old burnt-out gamekeeper’s lodge which the author
used to visit. The building is currently administered by the Orava Museum of P.O. Hviezdoslav. The Museum established a unique exhibition dedicated to the famous work “Hájnikova žena” written by Hviezdoslav. Hviezdoslav gamekeeper’s lodge is the first truly literary museum in Slovakia dedicated to a specific literary work of art.
