Veľký Lipník (Rusyn: Великый Липник, Ukrainian: Великий Липник, Hungarian: Nagyhársas) 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 1794.
In historical records the village was first mentioned in 1338. In the 15th or 16th century Vlachs settled here, who would later become Rusyns. Local Rusyns had prior to World War I many relationships with Lemkos from Ruś Szlachtowska.
