Directions to Museum of the Orava Village in Zuberec

3 km (1.88 mi) away from Zuberec, at Brestová, a unique open-air Museum of the Orava Village (Múzeum oravskej dediny) can be visited.

Over an area of about 20 ha (49 ac), and on both sides of the crystal clean Studený potok brook, is a village containing the typical folk buildings moved here from various regions of Orava.

A visitor can see here all kinds of buildings - peasant houses, larders, lumber rooms, farmsteads, shepherd's huts, haylofts, etc.); sacral buildings (a wooden church, cemetery and belfry) and the craftsman's and linen-maker's houses (a Wallachian mill and sawmill, a potter's furnace and fulling mill, etc.).

The museum is divided into five sections regarding each individual region. The Market Place of the Lower Orava exemplifies the richer side of the region with rather large, ostentatious houses. The Mill near the brook includes a water mill, sawmill and fulling mill with their common water-driven mechanism. The Lane of the Zamagurie Region, with houses and farmsteads of rich and medium rich farmers, represents the typical structure of an Orava village. The Goral Settlement represents the poorest part of Orava lying on south-eastern slopes of the Oravské Beskydy mountains.

The cemetery with the Late-Gothic wooden church from Zábrež from the 15th century, standing on an elevated location, dominates the area.

The museum regularly organizes ethnological expositions and the international Podrohácsky Folk Festival is held in the local amphitheater in August. Artisans present their skills and produce within the area of the museum. A relax in the original inn of an adapted old mill is also attractive.
