Such a breathtaking experience visiting this monastery. It's situated in the beautiful nature and you can just feel how the monks lived and worked there. Monks spent most of their lives living in complete silence. They also had rights to make beer, legal rights and right to fish from the local river. Our visit was very pleasant and would definitely come back.

Well preserved monastery, which gives a great insight in the working of a monastery, where part of the monks were living in solitude; you can visit some of their homes inside the monastery. Church services are still held in the church. Explanations in the museum are translated in English and you will be given a brochure in English as well (besides other languages).

For the entrance price, you can have a tour around some od the open for tourists areas o the Klastor, this takes relatively short amount of time to see it all. You might get a chance to hear monks singing which is nice thanks to acoustics of the place. There are shows organised inside with wild birds, which was really nice to watch. Otherwise, the usual museum experience.

Nice building but bad infrastructure. Offical pub let’s you only pay cash and the toilet costs money. When you don’t have cash, you can either just ignore the screaming toilet woman or use the walls of building. I chose the first. But seriously, if this is supposed to be the standard, especially in Corona times, stay away from this place.

A lot of people visit Cerveny Kláŝtor on foot and/or biking. It is a way to do. However, if you plan to travel by car (like us) do not waste opportunity of see the other great sights in the area. First, the Kláŝtor public parking lot is on the east side, need to pass its building if you traveling from west. Visit in the Kláŝtor is interesting and I would suggest staying on falcon show. After that continue east. The first stop could be Kupele Cerveny Kláŝtor or Smerdzonka. It is a modern spa with the sulfur springs smell all around. Continue east to Haligovce, where on the left side of the road (north) there is a view of the Haligovske skaly (rocks). It is there in the caves below, the famous Janosik had his hideout. In case you are ignorant to the Janosik legend, he was a folk hero who (like a Robin Hood) rubberized the rich and was giving to the pour. However, the real sightseeing treat is still ahead. Travel ahead to the village Velky Lipnik (from XIV century) and turn left (north) to Lesnica. The road passes through the Lesnické sedlo (pass) with the best views in the whole region. Park the car in a large informal parking area in the pass and even hike a nearby hill for a better view. Still have time? Continue to the Lesnica (even older than the Velky Lipnik) and at the end of the village there is Chata Pieniny, a hotel/shelter with a nice restaurant. The wooden carvings all around the area are good samples of mountain art tradition. Up to this point you traveled approx. 20 km. If you want more, read our review on castle in Stara Lubovnia. But castle visit would require returning to Velky Lipnik and continue driving east.

The monastery is not big, yet quite old (XIVc) and lovely situated on the Polish - Slovakian border, with influences from Hungarian founder as well. Polish kings and queens were quite generous to it, too. Apart from a museum you may take part in a birds of pray show where the eagle and owls fly just above your heads. If you're lucky enough they may pat your head with their wings quietly. A hit for the kids, a nice time to spend an hour or so. Two of the falconers speak Slovakian and Polish in turns so both tourists can understand and enjoy. The shows are every odd hour on the hour.

In the beginning of 14th century, long before Slovakia became Slovakia - this region was part of Hungary - monks of Carthusian order built their monastery in a fabulous place, where Lipnik stream ends its journey in Dunajec river, on a small plateau, with astonishing views of Trzy Korony (Three Crowns) mountain. Carthusian order lasted here till mid 16th century, then monastery became abandoned, apart from few decades in 18th entury, when monks of Camaldolese Order took over, but didn't stay for long, since Joseph II, Holy Roman Emperor (German emperor) ordered the dissolution of the Camaldolese Order. From the beginning of 20th century the monastery became a state property, at first of the Austria-Hungary state, then Czechoslovakian state, and now Slovakian state. Those governments spent a lot to bring ruins by then back to their former glory, and to make it available for visitors. And so it is now a big tourist attraction, very close to Slovakia/Poland border. First courtyard opened for everyone, with resturants outdoor seating taking about half of it. The ticket office with souvenirs shop is located in the passage to the second courtyard. Second and third courtyards and the church are available for ticket holders. Superb views from the third courtyard. Very restricted parking places around the monastery, some private ones (toll) in the village to the west or to the south of Cerveny Klastor.
