Hollókő means "Raven-stone" in Hungarian and this is a Palóc ethnographic village in Hungary, a part of the World Heritage.
It is a real settlement which portrays complete historical and ethnographic characteristics of life. I like this place very much because it is like a living museum. Located in Nógrád county, approximately 91.1 kilometres northeast from Budapest, you can reach there by drive. It lies in a valley of Cserhát Mountains, surrounded by low peaks. The natural environment, two streets as well as 55 houses are protected.
The protected part of the village – Lajos Kossuth and Sandor Petőfi streets, 55 houses
The House Of The Countryside
The House Of The Weavers
The exhibition of woodcarver Ferenc Kelemen
Worth to get there as the atmosphere is very special.
