Description

Where else would you look for a magnificent statue of the most famous Slovak brigand, if not on his native heath, in Terchova? Every tourist who goes through this place must see its dazzling beauty from a distance.

The monumental statue of the folk hero and brigand Juraj Jánošík is seven and a half meters tall and is made of steel (stainless steel). It was unveiled on the occasion of the 300th anniversary of Jánošík's birth in 1988.

It is located on the hill of Vŕšky, by the road that goes to Vrátna Valley. It is part of the memorial that Terchová inhabitants built for their famous native. The statue is in fact spectacular and rises above the village as if the spirit of Jánošík was still watching over the people of Terchová. Several well-trodden footpaths from the village lead to the statue.

If you go to the surroundings of Terchova during the summer months, do not forget that Jánošík's Days - a folklore festival with international participation - is held every year at the beginning of August.
