It became known as the place of Chochołów uprising of 1846. The village comprised almost exclusively of the original Polish highlanders’ wooden farm houses from 18th and 19th century which were listed by UNESCO as the World Heritage site. The oldest house, built in 1798, has been turned into a Museum of Chocholow Upraising. People still live in most of the houses, and therefore, Chocholow is a unique open-air live museum. The most attractive time for a visit is just before Easter when the houses are cleaned with soap and water. In Chochołow, there is also a church from the 19th century and a regional place where you can buy some souvenirs.
