Vlkolínec

Vlkolinec is the only inhabited village in Slovakia wholly untouched by modern development and provides a glimpse of what everyday life was like in traditional settlements of central Slovakia. The 45 log houses (with outhouses) from the 16-19th centuries, a log bell tower and functioning covered well for drinking water are all in use by the 20 residents. UNESCO judged it to be the best-preserved grouping of traditional housing in the entire Carpathian region (this includes Poland, Slovakia, Hungary and Romania). There is also a museum within one of the buildings.

    Yes, there is accommodation in Vlkolínec: http://www.vlkolinec.sk/?lang=sk&theme=sluz
    But you can’t live in the heritage wooden challets.
    You have to travel from Bratislava to Ružomberok about 3,5 hours by train. And in Ružomberok you can take a bus to Vlkolinec. It is easily accessible.
