A traditional folk village

Čičmany hidden deep in the mountains is the beautiful example of how the ordinary people lived in the old days. Wooden houses painted with typical local ornaments, nowadays inscribed in the intangible cultural heritage of Slovakia. As the village is very isolated, the culture and traditions are still well-preserved.
