Museum of the Liptov Village Pribylina

Every year my family goes for vacation to Vysoké Tatry mountains or in last years to Liptov one of the most beautiful and interesting regions of Slovakia. Liptov is surrounded by highest mountains in Slovakia: Vysoké Tatry and Západné Tatry. Is the entry to the highest montains in Slovakia.
Three of Slovak`s the most breathtaking caves are also in Liptov.

In the region of Liptov, before reach to Liptovský Mikuláš , there is a huge water area of the dam Liptovská Mara also called Liptov sea. It is the largest water reservoir in Slovakia Construction of the dam required moving  of several villages which were inundated.  The most important of them were moved out and are now the main exhibits in the Museum of Liptov Village in Pribylina.

In Pribylina Open-Air Museum I have never been so astonished. The expositions in each of the houses to demonstrate to visitors the secrets of old crafts. Some of the crafts performed include methods for making  simple techniques of woodcarving, working with leather, decoration of buckles and gingerbreads.
The museum of Liptov Village in Pribylina is more complete than other open-air museums in Slovakia.

So, if you travel to this part of Central Europe and you like rural tourism, I’m sure that this pretty village of wooden houses will surprise you.

For me Pribylina  is a must if you want to know the cultural traditions and the architecture of this jewel of Slovakia. So we recommend not miss this open-air museum of folk art in the country.
