The following video documents the beautiful landscape in which Sans Souci is located and we believe that thanks to it, our monument will find more visitors and supporters. Thank you.

Big thanks to the financial support from Tatravagónka Poprad, thanks to which we were able to reconstruct and renew the Sans Souci summer house. In addition, we managed to build sanitary facilities for greater comfort for visitors. We hope it will inspire other donors, as well.

The popular rest area is monitored 24/7 thanks to a donor who supplied and installed a camera system around the Sans Souci chapel at his own expense. We are very happy that such a sponsor has been found. The reason and motivation of the sponsor is described in the following TV Reduta report (in Slovak language only): Heartfelt thanks for the entire civic association, Mr. Slavomír Harmat.
