Hollókő is Hungary's Ethnographic Village and World Heritage Site

Hollókő


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.
