The north of Slovakia is full of amazing locations that should be a mandatory part of anyone’s “what to do in Slovakia” list. One of the must-see places has to be the castle of Stará Ľubovňa and its neighbouring skanzen museum.

Stará Ľubovňa castle, dating back to the late 13th century, is a massive construction, very well maintained after recent reconstructions, and gives you an amazing view over the valley.

The skanzen museum, a large open-air property full of authentic traditional wooden houses from the region, gives you a nice insight in how people used to live back in the days. The highlight for me has to be the (still functional) original 19th century wooden church of St. Michael, brought from the nearby village of Matysova, with its colourful decoration.
