Tisovec – the small town situated at the Rimava river bank. The name was acquired by the yew-tree (“tis”) which occured here in a great amount in the past. The first written mention of Tisovec originates from the year 1334 from a pergamen of the Hungarian king Carl Robert, issued at Vyšehrad the 26th of June. Tisovec is situated in the northern part of the Rimavská Sobota district. The town counts 4500 inhabitants.
