Fantastic places where you can experience the old times in the present. This historical village still lives. People living there still produce their products.

Holloko is a nice enough little village and a good place to stop and take a wander if you happen to be in the area. A destination it is not. Some nice traditional houses. The castle is very nice and worth visiting.

This is a delightful little "living museum" with many original buildings, maintained as they have been for over a century. The castle is an easy but uphill walk, well worth the low entrance fee and the hike. Inside are interesting displays about the history and...More

What's interesting about Holloko, rebuilt in its original style after a 1909 fire, is that it is an intact 18th century village. There are cuter parts of villages of a similar vintage throughout the region, even if none are preserved as an intact ensemble. It...More

We walked around Holloko in the off-season, which may explain some of what it lacked. The village is clearly well-preserved and scenic to walk through, but there are very few signs. When we went there was little beyond a few open restaurants and shops.
