Natives make delicious sheep, smoked cheese at their homes not only in Parnica but around this region of Slovakia called Orava as well. The cheese is called "syrove korbaciki" which means cheese, thin pigtails in Slovak as the cheese is formed in shape of a thin pigtail. Usually you can buy a bag containing at least a few cheesy pigtails.
"Syrove korbaciki" are not always available in groceries but usually locals sell them directly on a street or a highway. Do they pay taxes? I doubt, maybe because of it street vendors - as I noticed recently - are less and less common. I found them driving highway 583 away of any city or village. Will they disappear soon? Hmm... it's a pity - this cheese sold in groceries (and produced by food factory) tastes somewhat worse as I noticed.
Driving around county of Parnica I didn't notice people wearing local, folklore costumes. They are used only for special celebrations nowadays.
But I noticed older women walking along highway with shawl over their head. One of them sold "syrove korbaciki" on a highway but she refused me to take her a picture.
Instead I took a picture of Parnica coat of arms dipicting a guy in local folklore costume. Hmm... they use rather mowing machines than scythes nowadays.
