Description

Can you guess which tank won World War II? For many, the answer is probably clear. It is the Soviet tank T-34. And one of them, as a memory of the liberation struggles of World War II, can be found in the village of Klenovec.

Klenovec belonged to the main centers of anti-fascist resistance during the Slovak National Uprising. Heavy fighting took place here. The streets were full of tanks and trucks then.

Tank T-34 arrived to the village by its own drive in 1969 on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the uprising. Subsequently, the engine was removed from it and left in the meadow at the main road. Surrounded by high cedars, it stands there to this day.

It is considered not only a memorial but also a tourist attraction due to its numerous attendance. Another historical artifact from World War II is a small cannon, which can be admired on the Karol Salva Square in Klenovec.
