When in Liptov, do not miss the chance to visit the most preserved reserve of folk architecture in Slovakia, registered in the UNESCO list, whose first written records come from the 14th century. It is a live village of Slovak mountain housing located on the original site with 19 permanent inhabitants living in 6 houses from a total of 55. Small wooden houses, painted with pastel colours, come mainly from the 19th century. All houses are made of wood, with only the church made of bricks. A very popular building in Vlkolínec is the timbered two-storey bell tower from the 18th century, situated on a stone stand and a timbered well from the 19th century.

Did you know that... ?

Legends say that the village got the name Vlkolínec because its inhabitants used to protect the town of Ružomberok against wolves, capturing them in wolf pits.
