Martin Kukučín Memorial House in Jasenová
The memorial house of the Slovak realist writer Martin Kukučín is located in the village of Jasenová, 5 kilometres from Dolný Kubín. It has survived principally as a result of its reconstruction in 1960, when it was also opened to the public.
It was built by the writer’s father John Bencúr in 1856, as evidenced by the inscription in the front room. The house with farm buildings forms an enclosed area whose inner and outer appearance comprises the environment in which the famous Slovak writer was born and grew up.
