Quality photo of Vlkolinec Village - Slovakia

Vlkolinec Village
Slovakia

60 min

Vlkoklinec was granted UNESCO status for the mainly intact folk architecture with artifacts dating back to the 15th century. One might say that in Vlkoklinec... time stands still and the traditional tools, artwork, crafts, and old-style kitchens will immediately take visitors back in past, when life seemed so much simpler. This remarkably untouched settlement consists of 45 wooden houses and outbuildings of which 2 have been converted to museums. To fully experience the past times, do try the local delicacy — warm, homemade poppy seed nut roll in the village store.

Kaliste
Slovakia

60 min

Slovak national cultural monument since 1961, the extinct village of Kaliste is commemorating the victims of the Nazi crimes. In 1945 the Nazis murdered 13... people and burned 42 homes as a revenge for sheltering and supplying partisans involved in the Slovak National Uprising. Only 2 houses remained after the destruction. The site today is an impressive place that honors more the lives of victims, rather than focusing on their deaths. Visitors can thus learn about the traditional recipes, the songs that were sung and view the photographs of the villagers. There is also the “Garden of Life” where every tree is planted for each Slovak village that suffered that same fate as Kaliste.

Quality photo of Zvolen Castle - Slovakia

Zvolen Castle
Slovakia

90 min

What’s most interesting about the Zvolen Castle is not its well preserved Gothic architecture inspired by Italian castles, or the Renaissance reconstruction when the external... fortifications and an entrance gate were added. The most significant fact is that this castle is currently the most extensive gallery in Slovakia as it guards a branch of the Slovak National Gallery. It is home to a large collection of old masters from the 13th to the 21th centuries. Visitors can admire a true wealth of artistic types, themes and styles that combines classic art, with an emphasis on iconography and Gothic art, with contemporary works.

Hronsek Wooden Church
Slovakia

75 min

This beautiful Evangelist wooden church was built in the early 18th century. In the period between 16th to 18th century more than 300 wooden churches... were built in Slovakia. But, due to the Habsburg authorities who wanted to reduce the number of Protestant churches, only 5 of these churches remained to this day. According to the law of that time, only 2 churches were allowed to be built per one region and thus those churches had to be very large to accommodate many worshipers. There were also very rigorous construction requirements for these churches but Hronsek Wooden Church is unique because of the evident Scandinavian architectural influences and it is unknown how or why these elements came to be incorporated into the structure.
