History of the village

Rohace and its surroundings were a terra incognita, from the ancient history and historical geography point of view.

The oldest mention of “Zwberczyc” settlement dates back to 1593, with 5 farm houses standing. Due to severe conditions, in 1598 the settlement had not been completely built yet; however, in 1604, after looting during the „Bočkaj uprising”, Zuberec ceased to exist. The resettlement of the village was mentioned 1609, and 15 years later 12 families and about 60 people lived in Zuberec.

During the turbulent period of the 17th century, during the Kuruc fights, the village was repeatedly ravaged, but the greatest damage was caused by soldiers of the Polish King John Sobieski in 1683. The settlers gradually restored the destroyed village and in 1715 Zuberec had 30 farms and a total of about 150 people. However, frequent barren years decimated the population, forcing them to relocate to more fertile regions. Many left to other counties for seasonal agricultural work. In addition to the rise in crafts, locals burned limestone and wove cloth. At the end of the 18th century there were 129 subjects living here, in 1870 the village had 182 houses and 1 007 inhabitants.

Despite the harsh conditions, Zuberec’s population kept on increasing and while in 1961 it had 1 061 inhabitants, there were 1 415 in 1980, 1654 in 1991, and 1837 in 2016.
