Pticie is a small village located in east Slovakia, slightly southeast of the town of Humenne. We have very little information about this village. If you would like to contribute knowledge or material about this village, please drop us a note.
Situated near the Ptanok valley stream (which gave its name), it was first mentioned in the Zemplin county archives, containing a castle from the King Stefan to the nobleman Ják Sztaráy of Michalovce.
Through its history, its inhabitants were employed in agriculture and as woodsmen.
