- About Slovakia
Vlkolínec, located in the National Park of Veľká Fatra is a quite remarkable oasis of folk architecture, having been classified as the best-reserved settlement within the Carpathian Arch. Originally a settlement of loggers, shepherds and farmers, its unique compound of original folk buildings remain untouched by modern construction.
Among the protected buildings in the community are 45 log houses with farmyards from the 18th century. Two of the most frequently photographed objects are a log, two-storey belfry from 1770 and a log well from 1860.
