Directions to Archaeological Site My?ia Hôrka
Archaeologists dug out here the remains of a stone town from about 3,500 years ago.
The discovered old settlement at Myšia Hôrka stretches on an area of 6,600 m² (7,893 yd²). It bears many traits, which testified to an advanced level of its inhabitants. The settlement is closed within a bulky defensive system with stonewalls, bastions, ramparts and dikes. Part of this settlement is acropolis, which was used as a cult place.
The historic settlement near Spišský Štvrtok was undoubtedly of urban character. The people of Ottoman culture inhabited the stone town below the Tatra Mountains about 3,500 years ago. The town protected the old trade road which connected the Baltic lands with the Mediterranean countries and led through what is today the Slovak region of Spiš.
Authorities are now reconsidering the possibility to make the archaeological locality at Myšia Hôrka accessible to public.
