Description

Jarovnice (German: Jarownitz; Hungarian: Jernye) is a village and municipality in Sabinov District in the Prešov Region of north-eastern Slovakia.

History

In historical records, the village was first mentioned in 1260.

Geography

The municipality lies at an altitude of 441 metres and covers an area of 20.170 km². It has a population of about 4,560 people.

Flood

Heavy rains on July 20 of 1998 brought about the worst floods in Slovak history, changing otherwise quiet rivers in eastern Slovakia into a lethal force. The wild, overflowing water rushed from the river bed, sweeping over and engulfing everything in its path. The tragic results of these destructive floods were 63 dead, over 3,000 people evacuated from their homes, and two thousand houses destroyed in dozens of communities.
