Long Description:
Jánošík has been the main character of many Slovak legends, novels, poems, and films. According to the legend, he robbed nobles and gave the loot to the poor. The image of Jánošík as a symbol of resistance to oppression was reinforced when poems about him became part of the Slovak and Czech middle and high school literature curriculum, and then again with the numerous films that propagated his modern legend in the 20th century. During the anti-Nazi Slovak National Uprising, one of the partisan groups bore his name.

The carwing in folk style is in front of Slovak restaurant.
