Architecture > Slovakia > Liptov Village (Open Air Museum)

 Sep 04 2012  

Arriving in the Liptov Village Museum, we were welcomed by a lively performance telling a story of highway man in Slovakia. Over 80% of the whole country is covered by mountains and therefore the country tale of highway man has been always a notable story to be told. The director of Liptov Village Museum, Dr Iveta Zusinova, a local grown anthropologist, commenced this museum for the sake of keeping important parts of 22 villages at which the area was wiped out to build up a dam.  This museum holds various events in order to form an image of the country life in the olden days for tourists.
