UNESCO Village Hollókő to Reopen, Celebrate Pentecost

MTI-Hungary Today 2020.05.26.

UNESCO World Heritage village Hollókő, in northern Hungary, will again reopen on the upcoming Pentecost long weekend, an organiser said on Tuesday.

A world heritage site since 1987, Hollókő is a picturesque village with two rows of intact village architecture surrounding a small, 13th century castle ruins.

The castle’s area and the village’s museums will reopen and in the centre a farmers’ market will sell home-made foods and an arts and crafts market will offer hand-made goods, Péter Kelecsényi told MTI.

Local shops and restaurants will also reopen for visitors who can also meet local craftspeople presenting their work in their courtyards and locals scaling the streets in their traditional costumes.
