Rural type houses from the Kralove Hradec Region and foothills of the Orlicky Mountains. The buildings have been transferred from their original locations, where they were exposed to the threat of destruction. However, even replicas of unconserved buildings have been built (according to original documentation, historical purpose or photo documentation etc.). Moreover, visitors can see a comparison of historical buildings after centuries of use with how they looked at the time of their construction.

Fully functional replica old Bohemian water mill from Běleč nad Orlici.
