Many people around the world dream of what it was like to live in past centuries, and Slovakia’s open-air museums aim to do just that: provide people with a sense of what life was truly like many years ago. Showcasing both classical architecture as well as many traditional handicrafts, these museums aim to bring back to life many ways that have been lost over the years to modernization and development.
