Vlkolínec is one of the jewels of Slovak folk architecture. Its origins date back to the 14th century. It resembles a medieval village residence – with wooden architecture and undisturbed development of log houses – surrounded by forest and narrow stripes of fields and pastures. There is a museum called Roľnícky dom, a fire-fighting exposition, a children’s park and occasionally various interesting exhibitions are held here. Since 1993, Vlkolínec has been included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
