Description

Above the village of Litmanová, at an altitude of 820 meters, there is a mountain called Mount Zvir rising. The idyllic environment is surrounded not only by beautiful nature, but also by a spiritual atmosphere. From August 5, 1990 to August 8, 1995, Mother of God appeared to 11-year-old Iveta Korčáková and 13-year-old Katarína Česelková in a tiny room of a log cabin - a "maydan" belonging to Vasiľ Korčák's family.

The spiritual messages that she left behind through two young visionaries, as well as the sense of her presence, persist here until today. Zvir has become an important pilgrimage site and is also part of the Jakubská road, which includes dozens of pilgrimage sites in many European countries.

Believers still come in large numbers to this place regularly. They meet most on Sunday after the first Friday of the month, and during the Main Pilgrimage on August 3 and 4. Zvir Mountain in Litmanova was promoted on 7th September 2008 and declared a Greek Catholic Marian pilgrimage site of the Prešov Archieparchia.

The area of this pilgrimage site is quite extensive. There is the Chapel of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin and the Source of St. John the Baptist, which represents the source of rebirth and renewal in the Holy Spirit for every pilgrim.
