    The Manor-house Strážky is one of the most important cultural monuments of the Spiš region.
    Together with Late-Gothic church of St. Anna and Gothic-Renaissance belfry they all create a unique architectonical complex.
    The village Strážky was founded in the second half of the 12-th century. At the beginning of the 14-th century the King Robert donated the village to the Berzeviczy family. The year 1556 was an important breaking point in the history of Strážky. At that time, Ferdinand I. donated the village to the Horváth-Stansith family, as a reward for help by defending the castle Sihoť against the Turks.
    Gregor Horváth-Stansith (1558 - 1597) built here a Renaissance manor-house, founded a Latin-humanistic school (1584) for children of Spiš nobles and finally a library which became one of the greatest libraries in Ungarn.
    During the 1970´s and 1980´s after a broad survey the Slovak National Gallery started a process of reconstruction of this object and the surrounding park. Several exhibitions were placed in the reconstructed building such as a collection of historical furniture and other interior supplements from the 17 - 19-th century, an exposition of Ladislav Mednyánszky and Strážky, special exposition of historical books about the history of the village and the manor-house and the history of clans by which it was owned in past.
