Tesárske Mlyňany is a village and municipality in Zlaté Moravce District of the Nitra Region, in western-central Slovakia.[1][2]


The town was originally formed by association of two previously separate villages, Tesáre nad Žitavou and Mlynany. Tesárske means Carpenter and so its name means Carpenter over the Zittau River and is among the oldest settlements in the region, first recorded as a settlement of Tazzari in 1075AD although Archaeological findings show settlement since the 9th century. Mlynany is first recorded as Malonian in 1209AD. Both names come from craft focus of its inhabitants.[3]


The village lies in the Zittau upland, on both banks of the Zittau river, about 4 km south of the town of Zlaté Moravce. [4] Nitra is the nearest large town.
