Łopuszna is a village in Podhale, that lies near the Dunajec river, just a few kilometers from Nowy Targ. It is at the foot of the Gorce mountains, with spectacular views of Tatra Mountains.
Łopuszna is the location of the wooden manor house built around 1790. It belonged to the Tetmajer family. Thanks to Leon Tetmajer the manor house became a patriotic center in the Podhale region. Some of the more notable visitors here were Włodzimierz Tetmajer, a political activist, and Kazimierz Przerwa-Tetmajer, a leading representative of Young Polish poetry.
Currently in the manor house there is a branch of the Tatra Museum. The main building is a typical nobleman’s country manor house, covered by a hipped, shingled roof, with a columned porch. Such manor houses were typical for Polish nobility in 18th and 19th centuries.
Other site in Łopuszna is a wooden Gothic church from 16th century (from the similar period that the one in Dębno Podhalańskie). Jozef Tishner, a famous Polish priest and philosopher, also lived in Lopuszna.
