Slovak National Uprising Monument in Levoča Hills

Description

The breathtaking Levoča Hills conceal the Slovak National Uprising Monument in their depths, which stands here in honour of the fallen heroes of the Slovak National Uprising. The memorial was built in 1965 and is dedicated to the victims of the tragic fall of a shot down plane on 23 October 1944.

It was a medical plane, which carried wounded French and Slovak partisans and was shot down by a German fighter. The memorial is complemented by a propeller shot down aircraft Li-2. This place is also thanks to the gazebo and charming views, a popular stop for tourists, cyclists, as well as a walking place of Levoča residents and residents of the surrounding villages.

There are marked hiking and cycling routes from the village Toryska (cca 5km), Levočská Dolina (cca 6km) and from Levoča (cca 14km).
