We walked to Vlkolinec from Ruzomberok ( Hrabovo ). This is very nice 5 km track. It passed near "Mini ZOO Sidorovo" with wonderful views on the mountains. We found in Vlkolinec something like historical or folk festival where some people wearing traditional slovak costumes...More

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.
