The place of apparitions of Virgin Mary
The Sanctuary of Virgin Mary of Litmanova

The village of Litmanova, Slovakia is located 6 miles away from the town of Stara Lubovna. It is inhabited mostly by the community of Greek Catholics who live down there.


From August 5, 1990, to August 6, 1995, on the mountain Zvir located nearby, which is less than miles away from the village, Virgin Mary appeared to two young girls – Ivetka Korcakova and Katka Ceselkova. Ivetka was a visionary to whom Our Lady used to give her messages. Katka was a witness during the apparitions when she could see Our Lady, but she was unable to hear her.

The girls received visits and messages from the Blessed Mother on the first Sunday of every month, which fell after the first Friday. During these apparitions, the Virgin Mary would encourage the youth to attend Church services. She asked them to offer sacrifices along with prayers in reparation for their sins, the sins of Slovakia and the sins of the world. 

Thousand of pilgrims accompanied the apparition on the mountain. About 100 meters from the hay-barn the Holy Virgin blessed a well and she recommended people to drink from this spring. According to the testimonies of many witnesses, the many of miracle recoveries apparently occurred.
