Vlkolínec heritage reserve of folk architecture is a tiny picturesque village near the town of Ružomberok in north-central part of Slovakia.

The little settlement in the Veľká Fatra Mountains, nestling under the steep rocky slopes of Sidorovo peak, is part of the UNESCO World Heritage.

Vlkolínec is a remarkably intact settlement of 45 buildings with the traditional log-built architecture.


It is the best preserved and a most comprehensive unit of its kind in the whole region.  Its historical center is dominated by a wooden belfry from 1770 and the log well dating from 1860 is also a rarity.

One of its traditional log houses was transformed into a village museum.
