Lovely UNESCO world heritage site, this traditional Hungarian "Paloc" village. Locals are very friendly, the building are in good condition, the streets and alleys are clean and tidy. Very nice atmosphere.

Textures are detailed even if you take a closer look of the object. The same house repeats along the way, but at least it renders fast, even while running. The cats appear in random places even during mission, I think that’s a bug, according to the manual they should only give you missions. I didn’t figure out how you can get into the museum, maybe you need to buy some cheese and give it to the oskolamester

Old Village of Holloko is a must to see location in Hungary.
Parking was easy. You could see several buildings and all of them are very well maintained.

It is a beautiful world heritage village with some museums and restaurants. Highly recommend. From the fort there is an easy short path to the village.

Interesting place, lots of walking.
Aug 2019
We been there twice. Once with small kids and once just adults. Small village, with tiny church and lots of art and craft shops and ruins of the castle on top of the hill. Definitely place to make stop if you would like to bring your family and friends some nice gifts from Hungary. Car park is far walk from village, also castle is pretty good walk from both parking and village, and if any festival takes place there, parking is a challenge. It gives something for everybody, but its necessary to check when activities takes place. If you are not interested in lazy afternoon walk between old houses, stopping in cheese shop for local cheese board or local bakery to eat local sweet rolls, shopping in local craft shops, then i recommend visiting Holloko during the festivals, its getting much more busy and crowded. We preferred lazy walks.

This was the first village protected by UNESCO. It has a lot of offer and maintains its charm. From the castle grounds one can only be thankful it has been protected and recognized.

Wonderful 1 day trips to the Hungarian countryside
Nov 2019
A world heritage site since 1987, Holloko is the most intact community of its kind in Central Europe. Fantastically restored houses, built over 100 years ago, some of which can be rented. They are built exactly like the originals destroyed by fire. he village preserves the way of life of the Paloc people.
The unique architecture, the culture, traditions, arts and crafts are not to be missed especially with the benefit of knowledgeable Fungarian guide And do not miss the food from the bakery.

GREAT day trip from Budapest
Jul 2019
We wanted something to do outside of Budapest and this and the fairly nearby Godollo Palace was the suggestion from our crack Hilton Budapest concierge. We loved it. Easy to walk around and NO tourists on this weekday except for a few Hungarians looking into their past. Sort of a Colonial Williamsburg for Hungarians (for those Americans who have been). One big exception, all 300 residents really live here and the tiny hamlet has been around for five centuries or more. You can watch people make things, cook things and act just like they would have hundreds of years ago. LOVED it.

Lovely day trip from Budapest
Mar 2019 • Friends
Roughly 2,5 hours bus ride away from Budapest, this small village hiding in the bottom of a small valley offers much more than I expected while planing the excursion. Locals were very friendly and ready to chat - as there weren't many visitors that day in Holloko they had all the time to kill. It was still a pleasant surprise.

Hiking trails are well marked and explanation is offered in English as well.

From spring till late fall Holloko definitely worth the time and effort.
