The village is absolutely worth seeing! The colorful cottages are beautiful. And it is even more fantastic when having in mind that it's not a museum - it's a living village where people leave.

Simply beautiful. There is nothing more to add... Ok, few words :) small village under the hill called Sidorovo shows how our ancestors lived in their age. If your camera is ready for warm up do not forget in in the car. Entry fee is just symbolic as well as parking. You can even meet some of 20 living inhabitants... More

On the one hand, this petite and lovely village is open-air museum with typical folk architecture, traditional houses and manners, but on the other hand, Vlkolinec is place where real people is still live. You can go and see how Slovak people lived hundreds of years ago and also life of today's people.

The village has its unique feel and preserved folk architecture and it's amazingly picturesque - photographers'll have a field day here. There is also a small museum and don't miss the local pub, very Slovak. An alternative route from a parking lot... More
