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

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.
