About why we are Zlatý Hýľ...
Once upon a time,
more than 777 years ago,
many little singing birds were living
in a magical forest near a field filled with beautiful flowers.
Many people used to go to the forest to pick mushrooms,
including a young man Štefan.
He loved the forest so much, that he built a small cottage, where he soon moved in together with his family, and
even started calling himself Štefan Hýľ.
Not much time passed since, other people started moving there;
until the village Hýľov was created.
Štefan's son Tomáš used to love watching birds, which were dancing all around the village. One day, he saw a bird, which was different than the others. When he approached the bird closely, he saw a gold dust on its feathers...
Tomáš couldn't sleep the following night, because of the strange bird with golden feathers.
In the morning, when the sun was rising, he collected the best seeds that he had at home for his new friend; and decided to follow him, in order to find out where the gold dust came from.
The bird was flying away and Tomáš was following him;
from time to time Tomáš sat down to rest, while the bird came to him and pecked up the seeds that he prepared.
After a long journey they came to one cave, which was next to a small forest spring. When Tomáš entered the cave, he couldn't believe his eyes- it was covered in gold-from bottom to the top.
Tomáš immediately told his dad about the cave.
They started mining the gold and they soon became very rich.
When the king found out about the gold, he sent them more miners, who started living there; and
that is how a new village called Zlatá Idka (Gold Idka) was formed.
But what happened to our golden bird? When he flew to his friends,
they didn't want to talk to him anymore, because he was different from them.
He could not even play in the cave, because the miners were there...
Therefore, he settled down in a beautiful, quiet valley in between Hýľov and Zlatá Idka, where he built his new nest. He also found a hen, who really loved the place, and they lived there together with their children and the children of their children; and their descendants live there until now...
And that is the place, where we have created for you, with love and respect to the nature, the oasis of relax, peace and something more, which will please both, your body and soul.
