Flag and coat of arms of Turecká are on this website. The village of Turecká is situated 17 km northwest from Banska Bystrica. It is located in the Velka Fatra mountains, at the foot of Krizna massif which is 1574 m high. The village itself is placed 610 metres above-sea-level. The earliest written reference of Turecká dates from 1563. The original inhabitants were coal workers who burned wooden coal for the nearby mines in Starohorska dolina (Starohorska valley). The latest tradition of the village is the World Championship related to the traditional Slovak food "bryndzove halusky". The competitors are cooking and eating this food and the best one is awarded with a prestigious prize.
