Červený Kláštor (Red Monastery) was established in 1319. Later on it was nicknamed 'red' after its red tile roofs. The monastery is located next to Dunajec River which is here the border river between Slovakia and Poland.
The monastery heavily suffered during WWII. Then was rebuilt in 1966 when it was re-opened as a museum.
One can read its long and complicated history in wikipedia.
There is a great view from the monastery to Trzy Korony (Three Crowns) summit which is situated on the other bank of Dunajec River (ie in Poland).
I didn't notice the drainage catch pit when I was taking this photo :-(.
