Podbiel is a small town in the Orava region of Slovakia, near the Polish border. The town distinguishes itself with its large collection of wooden houses, which – unlike in many other villages – are quite well integrated into the rest of town. Clearly, people are living in these houses, and they are not just there to please the tourist – even though, apparently, some of the houses have been turned into tourist accommodation. Nevertheless, it is an impressive collection!
Oh, and there are more in the open-air museum in Zuberec.
