The Slovak Country House


This house shows us how people in the XIX. century lived in the area of Békéscsaba after the depopulation was solved by slovakian immigration to the country.

Located at 21 Garay Street, the dwelling house-turned-skanzen has all the local characteristics of houses in the Great Plain. It also offers insight into the 19th century lifestyle of well-off peasants and the traditional values of the Slovak ethnic minority. It familiarises visitors with the functions of the veranda (or “podsztyena” in Slovak), the kitchen – the most important room in the house –, the tisztaszoba (literally the “clean room”, a spare room only used for special occasions), the backroom and the small and big pantries. Some beautiful pieces of painted furniture and ornamented furnishings are also on display.
