In this article, we will present a few places that will surely quench your thirst for knowledge and curiosity, at least for a while. Will it be a castle or a museum? Cultural Orava offers both.
This national cultural monument is located in the village of Oravský Podzámok, which stands on a steep cliff above the Orava River. Orava Museum is located in the castle, where archaeological, natural science and ethnographic exhibits are installed. The castle is open to the public daily from May to March.
Orava Village Museum
The open-air museum in Zuberec is situated in a beautiful natural environment of Orava in the Roháčov foothills. It offers a glimpse into the life of people from Orava in the past, as well as into 50 folk architecture buildings and structures.
