    Martin Skansen

    by trisanna Written Jan 14, 2006

    A skansen in an open air museum full of old buildings that are from all over Slovakia. There are farm houses, work houses, a church and other various buildings. One can go into some of the homes, which are decorated with period furniture. There is one restaurant on the premises.
    Highly recommended.

    Slovak National Museum

    by trisanna Written Jan 14, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Located in a very communist rectangular building that has no fuss. This building has a very interesting collection of folk costumes from all over the country. Some stuff at the museum is hit or miss, such as the embroidery and stuffed animal collection. But the collection of local tools, ceramic bowls and textiles are interesting. Really illustrates how someone lived in the surrounding area a hundred years or so ago.

    Hardly anything is written in English. You can ask the people at the reception for a one or two page description of the museum in English. The staff don't speak much English, but do speak Slovak and German.

    Visit the High Tatra mountain...

    Visit the High Tatra mountain range.
    I've put this information here because I visited these mountains in a day-trip from Vrutky. The most important town in the High Tatra region is Poprad, which has even got an airport.


    The High Tatra is a mountain-range, the highest and most Northern of the entire Carpathian mountains. These mountains are a giant curve through Romania, Ukraine and Slovakia.
    In the High Tatra you can hike, climb and in winter ski as well.

    Visit Cicmany

    Visit Cicmany



    Cicmany (800 inhabitants) is a small village. There are 140 wooden houses with rather particular paintings. There is a museum of the village life.


    Houses are protected as a village reservation. There is a small hotel and good though limited ski possibilities with ski-lift in winter. Well-known spa Rajecke Teplice is not far from the village. Regional folk-fest takes place usually in June.
