Vlkolínec

Open-air museum, Folk museum
  • Recommended

Biely Potok is the salient point for the community of Vlkolínec – a monument reserve of folk architecture. This extraordinary and remarkable oasis of folk architecture was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1993.

The community was first referred to in 1376. Its unique compound of original folk buildings remaineduntouched by modern construction. Based in comparative study of ICOMOS (International Council for Monuments and Settlements) it was classified as the best-reserved settlement of this time within the Carpathian Arch. Originally it was the settlement of loggers, shepherds and farmers.

Vlkolínec is a typical example of a two-line street pattern with long yards. In its centre, the community divides into a street leading to the Baroque-Classicist Roman-Catholic church of the Virgin Marys Visitation of 1875 and a street heading along a steeper terrain to the foothills of the Sidorovo Mountain (1,099 m).

At the division of the streets the two most frequently photographed objects stand – alog two-storey belfry from 1770 on a stone stand and a log well from 1860. Among the protected buildings in the community are 45 log houses with farmyards from the 18th century. The interesting thing is that it was painted in blue, rose and white paints twice a year.

A typical example of a house in Vlkolínec is the farmers' house – a detached outdoor part of the expositions of the Liptov Museum. The house was built in 1886 and opened to public in 1991. Its well-preserved original interior and furniture provide a true picture of the way of life of its ancient inhabitants from the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century. The remaining protected objects in the monument reserve are still inhabited, its population amounts to 30 and this is the reason why visitors can see only the exterior of houses.

Vlkolínec is included in the National Park of Veľká Fatra. The cyclist route crosses it and owners of several private houses offer accommodation. The interesting folk event called “Sunday in Vlkolínec” is organised every summer at the beginning of August.

Deer´s waterfall

Deer´s waterfall

The waterfall is located on Jeleňý potok, a right-hand tributary of Čutkovský potok. It is cascading, two-story and its most beautiful is its upper part. From a professional point of view, this is the so-called destructive waterfall, which means that its height and slope decreases over the ages by the action of water. Jelení waterfall is one of the stops on the educational trail Známa neznáma Čutkovská dolina. The trail starts at the mouth of the Čutkovská valley and opens up all the most interesting corners of the area. The section in front of the waterfall is equipped with 84 steps due to the more demanding terrain. As the amount of water in the waterfall fluctuates during the year, it is best to visit it in the spring or during periods of heavy rain.

Brankovský waterfall is located on the western edge of the Low Tatras at the mouth of the Revúcka valley. The waterfall with its height of 55 m is the highest waterfall in the Low Tatras. At the same time, it ranks in the top five highest waterfalls in Slovakia. The amount of water that flows through a waterfall depends on precipitation, ie also on the season. The waterfall and its surroundings have been a national natural monument since 1980. It belongs to the Low Tatras National Park. Despite its importance, the waterfall is little known to visitors to Liptov. In the winter months, the Brankovský waterfall turns into an ice wall covered with many trinkets and other ice formations.

Lučanský waterfall

The waterfall is a great rarity also because it lies in the middle of the village. It is 12 meters high, cascading and falls from the edge of the travertine terrace into a small lake. The Lúčanka or Teplianka stream itself is not interesting at all, but its tributaries are gypsum-earthy Teplice, which enriched the decoration of the waterfall by flowing over the mentioned travertine terraces, from which the waterfall falls down.
