Directions to Museum of the Kysuce Village in Vychylovka
The outdoor ethnographic exposition presents the 'kopanice' type of scattered settlements in hilly areas which was typical of the Kysuce Region.
The main reason for the establishment of the Museum of Kysuce Village was to save rare objects of folk architecture from the villages of Riecnica and Harvelka that would have otherwise been inundated due to the construction of Nová Bystrica dam. Gradually, structures used for dwelling, farming, technical or sacral purposes from several villages of the Kysuce region have been relocated to the Museum, which started its pilot operation in 1981.
In situ constructions – seasonal shelters for shepherds, so called 'cholvárky' have also been preserved in the open-air Museum. The center of the village comprises the Chapel of Virgin Mary - Lady of the Rosary from Zborov nad Bystricou, an inn from the village of Korna and the oldest dwelling house from 1806 from Ošcadnica. The quiet environment, spacious area of the exposition and beautiful natural surroundings stimulate the interest of its visitors.
Every Sunday during the tourist season (May - October) the Museum offers its visitors cultural events with a varied program and presents the Museum as an authentic village, specifically through breeding livestock, cultivation of crops and authentic cuisine consisting of dishes from the years long past, times of our grandmothers.
