The monastery construction, which started in 1330 was financed by Hungarian noble Kokos Berzevici as well as by Polish king Kazimierz and Queen Jadwiga. The Camelot order constructed new houses, hospital and famous apothecary in XVIIIth century. The brother Cyprian (Franz Ignatz Jäschke) belonged to the Camelots. He was known as flying monk, because the Pieniny Highlanders believed that he was a sorcerer, which could fly. He used the home-made wings to fly from Trzy Korony Mountain to the Monastery

3. Village of Vysne Ruzbachy- anyone interested in sculptures can visit an international symposium- it´s an open air museum of stone sculptures made of local travertine in the former travertine quarry. The artists have worked on it for over 50 years. There are over 100 sculptures on site at the moment. Another place worth visiting are travertine craters in Vysne Ruzbachy. The craters of Ružbachy have nothing to do with volcanoes or volcanic eruptions. They are results of the collapsed travertine monticules, which precipitated around the mineral springs rich in calcium.
There are four big and several small travertine craters in the spa of Vyšné Ružbachy. Kráter is the most popular among them. Its diameter is 20 metres and it is two to three metres deep. It is the biggest travertine lake in Slovakia.
