Slanica Island of Art

Art lovers will be impressed by the Slanica Island of Art, located in the middle of the Orava Dam and accessible by ship. Here you can see the works of folk painters, carvers and stonemasons, who had no training and learnt just by observing the patterns of daily life and created beautiful works of art belonging to the collections of the Orava Gallery.

Did you know that... ?

Out of the five villages that disappeared forever under the waters of the dam in 1953, only a knoll with a Baroque church and Calvary were preserved.
