The first written mention of Sabinov dates back to the year 1248. Because of its good natural conditions and geographical position, it became rapidly prospering city in east Slovakia. On an area of 2333 hectars, more than 12000 citizens live today. In this little community, there live people of various religions and nationalities. The history of Sabinov is rich on cultural traditions connected with many famous peoples who were born and lived here. Some of them got international recognition.

2. Summary of Our Project

That is the reason why we have chosen the topic „The landmarks of the city of Sabinov“.

Special attention will be paid to the house of famous artist Kostka Csontváry.
