Slovakia in the district Zvolen. It is located in the Zvolenská hill country

Village belonged to the castle county, but from the 16th century there
were Curia's areas. Inhabitants were famous as keeper of birds. Matej Bel
had organized competitions in catching birds taking place here every year
in the autumn.
