Despite beeing museum, there are still people living there or using it as weekend houses! So dont expect to go inside everywhere. everything original - not a collection of old houses from around. Breathtaking nature around - hills, rocks, forests, sheep and more.

This UNESCO site is well worth the trip from Ruzomberok, lovely setting and authentic 150 year old village.

A UNESCO World Heritage site up in the mountains, with traditional, colourful wooden houses which are still inhabited. A beautiful village.

Very special Unesco site! Really neat to see how people used to live. Very good display (not in English) about the role the village played in battle against Nazis in WWII.
