Worth the visit. Beautiful nature around the village and it's interesting to see how people used to live in the past. The open farm is fun for kids especially.

We were travelling through Slovakia with motorbikes and put Vlkolinec on our road book. Very nice village (better to visit outside of holiday period) with typical wood houses in a wonderful landscape.

The whole area is full of nature - peaceful and fantastic landscapes. The typical medieval settlement with unique houses is authentic and with less commercial business concept. The way to get there is not easy to find. Google maps failed.

We were driving from Žilina towards Levoča and we made a detour to Vlkolinec. It is a very nice village, very well preserved. It was a really wonderful experience walking around an watching those old houses. One of them also houses a little ethno museum.

We drove to Vlkolinec early morning and the scenery was just beautiful & unique. But the Unesco label makes you anticipate something really really unique and indescribable. But I have to admit we were a little disappointed by the look, how the village is preserved....More

Hey, mostly tourist attraction then the real view into the old ages, everything was renovated, far away from the real life. But the landscapes were completely beautiful. It really worth the time to go there for couple of hours.
