Museum was founded in 1912 by a group of enthusiasts led by Arthur and Julius Kűrthi grouped into Liptov Museum Society. The original seat of the museum was in an old vicarage from the 15th century, where the mausoleum of Andrej Hlinka is situated now. Since 1937, the museum resides in a representative building built in 1930s, and designed by a significant architect from Ružomberok, Wojciech Donner (1901-1945). The town of Ružomberok is a patron of this new museum building, one of the first purpose-built buildings of its kind in Slovakia. Building was conducted by a local builder Július Záchenský.

Museum exhibitions offer a comprehensive overview of animate and inanimate nature of the region Liptov, important archaeological findings and sites, history of the region Liptov dated from ancient times to present times, and an opportunity to enjoy the jewels of local art-historical monuments exhibited in the Gallery of Sacred Art and Exposure of Štefan Šovánka. Special attention is devoted to the history of paper production in Slovakia and a personality of Andrej Hlinka. The offer also includes a number of cultural and educational events, exhibition projects, including national and international shows of art photography, traditionally associated with the creative background of authors in Ružomberok, and with the institution of Liptov Museum. The seat of the Liptov Museum in Ružomberok holds a newly opened exhibition called Poklady spod Likavy (The treasure from under Likava), which displays the collection of 1868 silver denarii and 2 golden ducats.

The huge world of the Čutko giant in Čutkovská valley near Ružomberok. In the summer, the children’s entertainment area offers a lot of fun and

obrovo logo

attractions for smaller and older children. The amusement park is named after the giant Čutko, who is said to live in the Čutkovská valley and is the last living giant of the carpathian type. There are trampolines, rope obstacles, swings, slides, or various games such as “Ludo”, and archery.

ČUTKO`S BED

I always lie down here in the evening and relax. Sometimes I just lie and watch beautiful sparkling stars in the black sky. Murmuring creek and forest make me sleepy… During the day, when I am high up in the mountains, you can jump on my bed as much as you can. Please do not soil my blankets or tear my duvets. I would be angry then! So take off your shoes and do not hang on the net. 🙂

ČUTKO`S PENCILS

Lately I was drawing something, but the wind blew so hard that took all my pencils with him. I was really upset, so I decided to look for the Wind. I found him sitting on the top of Čebrať and was drawing something. When I asked him why he took my pencils, he sadly looked at me and complained, that he loves drawing so much but does not have his own pencils … I had a great idea to leave the pencils up side down in Cutkovo so the Wind can come at any time with the paper and as he is blowing he can draw beautiful pictures! Since then, whenever I hear something swooshing at night, I know it’s my friend Wind.

ČUTKO`S CRADLE

This is my nicest childohood memory. When I was a little boy, my mum used to lull me there.I remember this most beautiful lullaby:

“Sweet dreams,My cute giant.
Čutko little one
you`re just three metres tall.
But when you sleep enough after all,
you will be tall as a fir alone!”
Watch your kids please. My cradle is too high for people, so do not
leave them unattended.

ČUTKO`S WASHING LINE

I stretched the cord from the cradle to dry my clothes. You can rope down from the cradle, just be careful not to fall! Sit on the button of my pants and hold tightly! Never touch the washing line. Hold a string of the button only!

ČUTKO`S TEETH

Hey friends, you can see my baby teeth here. My mother shelved them when they fell out. But they are still as white as snow! It is also thank to you because you wash them every day with water guns with clean water from the creek. Do not forget to wash your teeth every morning when you havHey people, do you also play draughts? It’s a great game! we are always playing with my cousin Shrek, when he comes around. The playing stones are quite heavy, so try to play it with your parents. They will certainly tell you how to do it. :)e eaten and every night before bedtime.

ČUTKO`S DRAUGHTS

Hey people, do you also play draughts? It’s a great game! we are always playing with my cousin Shrek, when he comes around. The playing stones are quite heavy, so try to play it with your parents. They will certainly tell you how to do it. 🙂

ČUTKO`S BRAIN TEASERS

I racked my brain when I was a little boy and I still do it. What about you? Try to fold my wooden childhood cube. When you succeed, you can hide something into it and surprise another friend who will try to puzzle it right after you. Or build something nice from Tangram, there are many nice and even simple images. Good luck! 🙂

ČUTKO`S SLINGSHOT5 € With every paying child, 1 adult is FREE! Huge is best suited for children under 12 years.

This is my slingshot, which I used to hit the cones on the trees. Ask my friends in striped T-shirts to give you a ball and try to hit my window. I have some cobwebs there, you can sweep them away with the balls …

GIANT`S LUDO

This game is well known all around the world. It is very popular among giants, we even have the world championship in this game! Although no one shouldn`t get angry in the game, you can`t even imagine what it looks like giants are playing it. You know how it is when someone is fired just before the final… 🙂

Museum of Liptov Village is the most attractive landmark of the Liptov region. It displays the typical folk architecture. The impetus behind the establishing of the museum was the extensive flooding caused by the construction of the Liptovská Mara dam.

The most important cultural monuments were moved from eleven flooded communities. They now constitute the main exhibits of the museum. Entire original buildings were dismantled and moved to the museum, which was opened to public in 1991. It is the most recently opened out-door museum of Slovakia.
Precious samples of sacral and secular folk architecture are the Gothic-Renaissance manor house of Parížovce and an Early-Gothic church of the Virgin Mary from Liptovská Mara. The manor house is a fine example of some of the oldest landowners’ architecture of the Liptov region and various architectural details including the Late-Gothic wall paintings will certainly attract the attention of the tourist. The church itself is much older, its foundations were constructed in the Romanesque style and laid down probably in the 12th century. It was rebuilt in the second half of the 13th century, later expanded, and in the 17th century the tower was added to it. The village school comprising also the teacher’s apartment of Valaská Dubová and exhibition of old beehives in the orchard next to the local school will also intrigue the visitor.
Within the museum complex there is a training centre for folk crafts offering samples of folk craft and arts (weaving, bobbin-lacing, wood, metal and leather-working, the manufacturing of wicker or straw baskets, etc)., as well as the typical folk costumes.

Regular events organised in the museum are the Sunday of Shepherd-Ovenálie held last Sunday of May, Sunday of Children held in June, the Sunday of Compatriots in July, the Sunday of Bee-Keepers in August, the Day of St. Hubert in September, and Harvest Thanksgiving in October, as well as Liptov Christmas in December.

The museum also has a zoo that concentrates on farm animals and poultry including horse breeding where horse riding is possible.

Likavský hrad (Likava castle) is situated in the north-western part of Liptov. The Castle was referred to for the first time in 1315. Its construction started with the intention to have a guarding point over the passage across the river Váh and the trade route from the Váh Basin to Orava and further to Poland.

The Castle owners, the noble family of Hunyady, gradually reconstructed and widened the core of the Castle and built the part called the lower Castle in the second half of the 15th century. In the second half of the 17th century, the Thökölys’ eventually finished the entire fortification system though it was of no use as it did not prevent the disaster at the beginning of the 18th century when the retreating troops of František Rákoczi completely pulled down the Castle in 1707.

The Castle gradually decayed in ruins. After a thorough reconstruction in recent year the tower Hunyadyho veža was opened to public. It contains the exhibition of the Castle history.
