"Rzepiska - a village with a view" Jurgow Off The Beaten Path Tip by evaanna
Jurgow Off The Beaten Path: 6 reviews and 24 photos
Situated at a height of 900 to over 1000 m a.s.l., Rzepiska lies on a few hills which offer a great view of the Tatras and the neighbouring villages. It is a beautiful area with very few tourists and friendly villagers, good for those who enjoy peaceful surroundings but rather hard to reach without your own transport.
The village has two churches - a wooden one and a brick one and two interesting roadside shrines. The bells inside them are supposed to guard the village against thunder, but the one at the top of the hill, dating back to 1928, was actually the site of the tragic death of a local man who, in 1967, went there during a thunderstorm to ring the bell and was struck by lightning. The cross at the shrine commemorates his tragic death.
