From Zilina, drive east 30 minutes to the beautiful small village of Terchova, birthplace and home of an exhibit of Slovakia’s most famous folk hero – Janosik (the Slovak Robin Hood) who took from the rich and gave to the poor during the 18th century. He was finally apprehended and hanged by his rib. The exhibit is in the Terchova branch of the Povazie Museum (www.muzeum.sk). Terchova hosts the annual folk festival, Janosik Days – celebrating this famous bandit – during the first week of August. Drive back via Bela and then north to Nova Bystrica, an open-air museum of buildings moved from two 19th century villages flooded by the creation of a reservoir.
