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.

There is nothing of interest to see at all here. A cordoned off street with houses selling bits and pieces. It takes an hour and a half from Budapest. Time would be much better spent in Eger, which has much more of genuine interest.

This area deserves to be on the Unesco world heritage list. There is also a very nice play house for children with some unudual but fun plays. A lot of nice shops where you could find nice souvenirs.

While interesting from a historical perspective, the village didn't really engage me. There is limited interpretive signage in English so I felt much of the significance of the villages was lost on me.

Visited during the Easter festivities. The entrance fee also includes the entry to the castle. During this time the old Hungarian tradition really awakens in the village. All sorts of craftsmanship can be observed. There is also a lot of people though.

The village is so pretty albeit off the beaten track! Many of the residents wear traditional Hungarian costume and the craft shops are amazing! Well worth the drive - beautiful and the hairy bikers filmed here!!!

When you enter the old town there is a tourist information office at the parking site. Then you can walk down to the old village itself. It is quite small but the houses are really well kept and there are some small local shops as...More
