Legend says, that after a devastating flood that afflicted Pominovec, only four families survived. Their members were able to rescue only seven sheep out of the wild water. The saved inhabitants would later build a new settlement and call it Sedmerovec (the name means “seven sheep”). The only thing left of Pominovec has been a rare romanesque Church of St. John the Baptist from the 12th century, located on the plains surrounded by fields. At the end of each summer a cycling pilgrimage is organized near the church.
On the way to Pominovec you can stop at the small Aviation Museum located at the airport in Slávnica. The museum was created on the initiative of members of Aeroclub Slávnica and nowaday you can see there 9 unique planes. The largest exhibit is Tupolev 134, which originally belonged to Czechoslovak Airlines, but after a hard landing it was removed from the squadron.
