The Foundation of Smolenice

In past, there used to be a deep forest in the area of Smolenice, through which led a road. One day, a person with a cart full of tar went that way. The local noblemen were on a hunt for a beautiful deer in the same forest at that time, as well. The deer in panic ran on the road and jumped straight at the cart with the poor man. The cart overturned and the tar was spilled on the ground. The man cried out in fear: “SMOLE NIC!”  And so from that day on the place was called Smolenice. The noblemen paid the poor man for the damage and took him into their service. They even built him a small cottage, where he lived and worked as a forester in the surrounding woods. And later more houses were built next to his and so, house by house, the town of Smolenice has been founded.
