Old Village of Holloko is a tiny town located in the center of Hungary. It is considered a World heritage Site by Unesco, because you can see a lot of traditional houses. The ols village has a main street and some few more. In fact,...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

Wonderful village - great ride from budapest- just know that you have plenty of time so really do take your time and chill at holloko- nice souvenir stores and traditional houses and streets with a castle in the background

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.
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.
