Vlkolínec, Slovakia is a picturesque city part of the town of Ružomberok, historically a separate village.

It was established in the 14th century and after 1882 it became part of Ružomberok.

Vlkolínec is part of the UNESCO World Heritage since 1993, and one of ten Slovak villages that have a status of a village preserve. It is because of being an untouched and complex example of folk countryside architecture of this region of the Northern Carpathians. The village comprises two or three room log cabine type houses. A wooden belfry from the 18th century has also been preserved.

Its name is probably derived from Slovak "vlk" i. e. wolf.
