The village of Smižany was first mentioned in writing in a document of King Belo IV dated 24 March 1254 under the name "Sumug" (Šumug), "Villa Canis" and "Villa caniferorum" - the municipality of hound handlers. Today it’s the most populous municipality of the Slovak Republic – with 8000 inhabitants. At the same time, Smižany is also a gate to Slovak Paradise National Park, only 1 km from the village. The ethnographical museum in Smižany (branch of the Spiš Museum in Spišská Nová Ves) is an important cultural institution in the village.
