Living tradition & folk art in Hollókő

Spend a day in Hollókő and get a feel of a place where tradition live on!

See the 58 protected buildings of Hollókő, including masterpieces of 17th-Century vernacular architecture! Get panoramic views from Hollókő Castle and enjoy authentic Palóc tastes and specialities in the heart of the village!

Try some of the wines of the Mátra wine region and relax with our round-trip transfer service from Budapest!

The picturesque Hollókő is not an open-air museum, but a real, living village with warm-hearted Palóc people.

This full-day excursion from Budapest takes you to the UNESCO town of Hollókő, inscribed in 1987 as a superb example of a well-preserved traditional settlement.

The picturesque village is located in the northern part of Hungary, about 55 miles (91 kilometers) northeast of Budapest. Take a 90-minute drive through the valley of the low-lying Cserhát Mountains to the ethnographic village of the native Palóc people, built in the 17-18th-Century.

The atmospheric narrow streets, typical Hungarian rural houses and beautiful surroundings reveal rural life before the agricultural revolution of the 20th-Century.

The most precious part of the village is the central area, where UNESCO has protected 58 buildings that are especially well-preserved masterpieces of 17th-Century vernacular architecture.

At the western edge of the village lie the ruins of Hollókő Castle, dating from the 13th-Century. The castle was abandoned at the end of the Ottoman occupation in the 17th-Century and stands on the crest of a hill where you can enjoy beautiful views of the village.

You will also enjoy some delicious Hungarian peasant food to round off your journey back in time, and to a place where people feel more connected to the land.

After lunch we will travel across the Mátra Hills and wish to invite you to an excellent winery to taste the finest Hungarian wines of the Mátra wine region.

You will be driven back to Budapest for your hotel drop-off in the late afternoon.
