Vlkolínec is one of the most famous and charming Slovak villages. It is located in the area of Veľká Fatra , on the outskirts of the town of Ružomberok. The first mentions of him come from 1376. Importantly, the original layout and buildings of Vlkolinec have not been changed over the centuries. Thanks to this, today it is considered the best preserved settlement of this type in the entire Carpathian Arch. Including this meant that it was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List .

Penzion pod Vlkolíncom

Penzion pod Vlkolíncom is located on the outskirts of Ružomberok, in a quiet and peaceful area. From here it is best to walk to Vlkolinc. It took us about 30 minutes (one way). A very nice host and a well-equipped room at an affordable price.

Hotel Kultúra

Hotel Kultúra is located in a beautifully renovated historic building. My room was large and comfortable. I really enjoyed the breakfasts and it was also worth staying at the hotel restaurant for dinner. Moreover, the hotel is in a great location. Close to the center, close to the mountains. I recommend.

Penzion Andrej

Reasonable standard, for reasonable money. There are no great luxuries here, but it is clean and tidy. The host, with whom we talked for a few hours on the first evening, takes care of everything. We recommend buying breakfast - delicious. The guesthouse itself is a good base for exploring the area.

Fatrapark Apartments House 2

The apartments are located right next to a small lake and a ski station. In summer, you can get to the Vlkolinc area by gondola in just a moment. Our room was very large, comfortable and nice. On the weekend, the parking lot got tight, but otherwise it was a perfect place for a week's stay.

A great place, located on the outskirts of Ružomberok, in the middle of the forest and right next to the ski resort. Lots of hiking and cycling trails around. The apartment was large and had everything, including a well-equipped kitchen. Good standard and comfortable conditions for really good money.
