Stráňany (previously until 1948 Folvark, Hungarian: Nagymajor, Polish: Folwark, Rusyn: Страняны) is a village and municipality in Stará Ľubovňa District in the Prešov Region of northern Slovakia. The village is traditionally inhabited by Rusyns, as one of their westernmost settlements. There is Greek Catholic church built in 1857.
In historical records the village was first mentioned in 1343. Initially it was a hamlet of Veľký Lipník with a folvark (hence the name prior to 1948). Around 1567 Vlachs settled here, who would later become Rusyns.
