The old village is a great example of a deliberately preserved traditional settlement and it developed during the 17th and 18th centuries mainly. It also is a fine example of rural life before the agricultural revolution of the 20th century. Highlights include the Hollokö castle, the Hollokö 16th century wooden towered church and the Hollokö houses, converted to folk museums that are preserved in their original state, including the obiquitous craft shops inside.
Located in the northern part of Hungary, in the Cserhát Mountains, about 100 km northeast of Budapest, it is a little more than an hour drive from the capital.
If you want we can extend this tour with a winetasting in the Mátra hills.
