European Quartet One Melody

 
The village secluded among the ridges of the Cserhát Mountains, which has remarkably preserved its medieval structure, was the first village to be included by UNESCO on the World Heritage List of protected heritage sites.

The centre of the living museum village, which includes 58 buildings and a fabulous, white walled church, has not changed since their reconstruction after a fire in 1909. Exhibitions on Kossuth Street also recall the 19th century: the Post Museum (no. 80) presents the costumes and arms of the postmen 200 years ago, the Weaving House (no. 94) shows the working tools of textile makers. In the meantime the museum of the Bükk National park displays the rocks, fossils and archaeological finds of the Cserhát Mountains. The Village Museum offers insights into the old form of life and the life-style of three generations living together.
 
Several of the houses receive holiday guests. On the hill rising next to the village, the 13th century castle offers a wonderful panoramic view of the landscape and of the Old Village where the preservation of traditions means more than just the folklore programmes of the House of Crafts (Mívesház). On holidays, for example at Easter, girls and women put on their colourful Hollókő folk costumes.
