Drienovec is a village bordering the national park Slovenský kras karst. It seems that the beauty of the local nature influenced the culture in the village as well. The first written record comes from 1241. The name is derived from the name of a bush with frequent occurrence in this area – drienka. The most dominant sacral building in the village is the Roman-Catholic Kostol sv. Martina (St. Martin’s Church), which was built at the site of a chapel in the second half of the 18th century. The Classical church is surrounded by a wall. It was reconstructed in the 20th century. Two crosses were installed in the village as well – one at the village’s entrance and one at the end. Kaplnka Panny Márie (St. Mary’s Chapel) reflects the strong influence of the saint on the souls of the citizens of Drienovec. The most important secular building in the village is the Classical manor house with a chapel built in 1780. Today, Rád Mariánskych Sestier (the Order or Marian Sisters) uses and meliorates the manor house. A beautiful park with a lake and a karst exsurgence used to be a part of the manor house. It serves as a drinking water source for Košice. The memorial tablet installed onto the local funeral home reminds of the harsh times of World War II. The citizens can enjoy a sufficient amount of sports and cultural facilities. The village runs a kindergarten and a primary school. In terms of business the Racio-styl Company is most dominant, together with the local agricultural cooperative. A retirement home offers its services here as well. In Drienovec, apartments for socially week classes have been built for a part of the local Roma community. The village has also built a sewage water treatment plant. The surrounding area is rich in mineral resources and fruits of the nature. North of the village, there used to be a spa, which is not used at present, but still represents a certain potential in terms of tourism industry. The best example of various karst formations in Drienovec’s surroundings is Drienovecká Jaskyňa cave which is interconnected with Jasovská Jaskyňa cave in Slovenský Kras karst. A large underground river flows through the cave.
