    Charming old houses at Zdiar

    Traditional house at Zdiar
    1 more image

    Although Zdiar has a number of new brick houses, there are still many traditional wooden ones, and they are the nicest. Constructed of beams cleverly joined at the corners, they often have weather-beaten shingled eaves, even if the actual roof has by now been covered with tin. White stripes painted where the beams meet are characteristic of the area, you can see them in the other picture of a house on the way up to Hreb'enok. Aren't they pretty?

    Horse-drawn carriage - still in use

    Horse-drawn carriage in Zdiar

    This kind of horse-drawn carriage is extremely rare now, but this one is still being used by farmers in Zdiar mainly to transport hay. Its wooden wheels with the iron rims make the ride extremely bumpy. I remember travelling in similar carriages on my holidays in the country in Poland. No matter how bumpy it got, the ride used to be a great attraction for the city child that I was.

    The city is not far from Poprad or Kezmarok - cca 35 km
    For us the perfect place for the dinner (Restaurant Salas u Franka) on the trip and the visit of the old castle in the city and museum of the old villiges houses - skanzen

    Warm homes

    Home sweet home :)

    Here's just one of nice houses. Most of the houses in this area look like this one in the picture. Inside there are more or less beautiful homes, but defenitely warm to accept everybody. The Slovakians were polite!
