Museum of the Orava village, Zuberec – Brestová
The museum is situated in a beautiful natural environment in the foothills of Roháčov. More than 50 buildings of folk architecture are built in several units that remind the individual parts of Orava - Dolno-Moravian rhino, Hornooravska street, Goral lazy.
There are also technical constructions such as a water-powered mill, a cloth stroke, an oil mill, a pottery furnace and others.
Above the "village" is the wooden Gothic church of St. Elizabeth of Hungary from the beginning of the 15th century. A church with a late-gothic painted ceiling and a functional portable baroque organ is the real jewel of the museum.
The home and livestock equipment (in the summer as well as the cultivation of typical crops) allow visitors to imagine the life and work of Oravci in the past.
