Štrigova is where the earth fell in love with the sky, kissing it with her peaks, and sky returning with the best it has. With sun and rain when needed, with snow and fog when earth soughts for protection.
The same is with people. They rely on each other, with their pure souls and minds, still relaxed in the manner of old-fashioned habits that unobtrusive way of life gives to those who live in harmony with nature.Everything the modern world almost has forgotten, still lives in Štrigova.
It is the Eden’s corner, they say. The hills are goldengreen there, decorated with vineyards whose fruits give divine drink, forests clean the air, hidden roads strengthen human’s body, and family homes warm up the valleys. Štrigova is where the country complements the sky. It is where everyone is like at home, and home is a place where you return again and again.
The center of religious life is the Church of St. Mary Magdalene in the heart of Štrigova, built in the 17th century. Near around is the Church of St. Jerome, built between the years 1739. and 1752.
