Svinia is situated in Prešov region. The first written reference comes from 1262. It belonged to an Ugrian  aristocrat from the Sinayei – Merše family. People dwelled on agriculture, weaving and work in woods. Thanks to a favourable location markets took place here from the 15th century. In the 17th century many Ugrian aristocrats, that took part on the anti-Habsburgian uprising were executed there. In 1274 there was built a gothic church devoted to Virgin Mary in Svinia. It is interesting, that it stands on the ground, where a castle once stood. To believers serves the chapel of St. Ján Nepomucký. There are also two mansions of Sinayei – Merše family. The first one serves as a school. The other one functions as a museum of agricultural implements and machines. The memorial in the village reminds of deceased cliffhangers. A worthy Mourning house serves for dead-offices. Svinia is characterized by an adequate civil service. Several firms flourish here, for example the Co-operative farm.  Recently, there was built a sewage tank.
