chodnik JK 4Staškov is a birthplace of the famous Slovak actor Jozef Kroner. In addition to the renovated house where he was born, his home village has also built an Educational Path of Jozef Korner, and a Path of Jozef Kroner.

While the Educational Path of Jozef Kroner is 16 km long and passes from the Municipal Office to the Chapel on the Muřínkový Hill on the border with the municipality of Horní Lomná, the Path of Jozef Kroner is only 1.2 km long and leads around the house of Kroner´s birth in the area called Grapa.
The statues placed on the path were created in sequences during three sculptural symposiums called Smiles of a Genial Clown organized in Staškov by the Association of Jozef Kroner´s Natives during the years 2012-2015 (2012, 2013, 2015). During the symposium, twelve Slovak academic sculptors created 12 wooden sculptures inspired by the theatre plays and films in which the famous citizen of Staškov performed and starred.
During his life, Jozef Kroner created a few dozens of memorable characters such as Pacho, Svágo Ragan, Kubo, Tóno Brtko or Martin Pichanda, the main character of the famous saga Millennial Bee. The following characters and movies are displayed in form of the 12 artworks placed on the Path of Jozef Kroner.
