    The open air museum is situated in a meadow at the foot of Ľubovňa's castle. There are 30 or so buildings, many of which were simply abandoned by their inhabitants, fleeing poverty and famine. Many of the buildings are farms and barns, but there's also a school, a mill and, best of them all, a wooden, Greek-Catholic church, transferred from Matysová to the museum. It's possible to go inside and take a look at the partly preserved iconostasis.
    This beautiful museum certainly merits a visit. The only downside is, that most of the information is in Slovak.

    Opening hours:
    May - Sept:
    9 - 18
    Oct:
    Tue - Sun: 10 - 16

    The folk museum shows you something of what village life used to be like. The houses, school, and church all came from local villages that were depopulated over the last century. The contents are all authentic, too, like these containers for beehives.

    Right below the L'ubovna castle is the skanzen, or open-air museum, with houses and a church brought from nearby villages.

    A local place that's big (lots of hungry skiers to feed!) but no less friendly for it. Service is pretty fast but you're not hurried at all and the staff will chat with you. And if you want a place to stay convenient to the ski slopes, there are rooms for rent too!

    Favorite Dish: Everything local is good-- sausage, pirohi, haluški... just don't count the calories, hike or ski them off instead.
