Tour description

Hollókő is a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987. The village's 67 protected buildings are characteristic peasant houses from the 17-19th century. Hollókő is an outstanding example of a deliberately preserved traditional settlement. This village is a living example of rural life before the agricultural revolution of the 20th century. T

The residents of this village of 400 are the Palóc people. Besides their special dialect, they retain their old folk traditions, crafts, songs and their colourful, richly decorated folk costumes.
This tour gives the ability to go back in time, see how people lived here. You will meet with people in Palóc costumes, see folk dance, see craftsmen in work, visit the Village Museum and the Doll Museum, and taste some regional food, made in the Palóc way.

Insider tip: Hollókő is worth to visit specially at Easter time,  when folktraditions - like eggpainting, girl's "watering" - are revived in a coloruful 3 day festival! Ask for dates and actual programmes!
