(31 December 2010)
Osturňa is a village and municipality in Kežmarok District in the Prešov Region of north Slovakia. The village is traditionally inhabited by Rusyns, as one of their westernmost settlements (together with Malá Franková and Veľká Franková).
In historical records the village was first mentioned in 1593.
Locals in the past had been engaged in agriculture and pasturage. At present its proximity of Ždiar and High Tatras is an asset. Inhabitants work in industrial facilities in Poprad or in recreational facilities in High Tatras. Inside the village are quite a few cottages and chalets for winter or summer holiday rent.
