Open-air museum

The Museum of the Orava Village ( _sk. Múzeum oravskej dediny) is located in Zuberec. This open air museum of folk architecture exhibits intact rural houses brought from all around the region of Orava and re-assembled in Zuberec. The oldest building, a Gothic wooden church, was already built in the 15th century, but the museum itself was founded in 1967. In addition to a church, it has now also its own graveyard and a functioning watermill. The interior of the buildings hosts an ethnographic collection. The gardens and fields around the houses show various ancient forms of farming and animal husbandry.

kiing

Zuberec has three ski resorts: Zuberec Janovky, Zuberec Milotín, and Zverovka Spálená.
