Oravsky Podzamok is not the best place in Slovakia to look at old, traditional wooden cottages. But there are a few ones including the building of Oravske Museum and casttle ticket office.
Notice that old, wooden cottages had base part made of stones. Why? Maybe to protect the houses against floods which may happen there. Orava river and mainly its tribuatary called Polhoranka, real mountain river flow very close to the buildings.
