HOLLOKO - UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE VILLAGE

Hollókő is a Palóc ethnographic village in Hungary and since 1987 a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It's also the only village in the world that has been inscribed on the list in its entirety.
Its name means "Raven-stone" in Hungarian. The village is located about 100 kilometres northeast from Budapest.

This village, which developed mainly during the 17th and 18th centuries, is a living example of rural life before the agricultural revolution of the 20th century. The most precious part of the village is the central area with 58 protected buildings, which preserves masterpieces of 17th century vernacular architecture.

Traditional Palóc peasant houses were built with porch, shingled walls and gable roofs that were topped with thatched roofing. The village suffered frequent fires because of the highly flamable thatching up untill the devastating fire of 1909.

The buildings that you can see today were rebuilt after 1909, by using the adobe walls and tiled roofs, but they still retain their authentic structure and the atmosphere of bygone ages.
