    It's hard to find a village as unspoilt as Hollókő (Raven Rock) in Hungary. It was inhabited by the Palóc, an ethnic minority with its own traditions and dialect. Although most of what we see today was rebuilt after a fire in 1909, the appearance of the village didn't change for centuries. This place is so special that UNESCO inscribed it on the World Heritage List in 1987.
    The houses in Hollókő are all very similar: white, with broad eaves and carved gables. Some are surrounded by a verandah. One of the houses is a small museum, giving you an idea of what live in Hollókő must have been like in the early 20th century.
    There are not many special attractions in Hollókő, but the walk around the village is very pleasant. Many houses are tourist shops nowadays, yet it wasn't overcrowded when we visited in mid-summer.
