Drnava lies in the Čremošná valley at the junction of the Volovské hills and the Slovak Karst. The village belonged to the castle estate Krásna Hôrka. The ironwork, which was located here, was already one of the most important in Hungary in the 1930s. One of the most famous iron ore mines in the village was the Dénes / Dionýz mine, named after Count Dionýz Andrássy.
