Magyar Magyar

Our heritage

Hungarian heritage is a broad abstraction that includes anything from art through architecture and habits to cuisine. Getting to know these elements brings you closer and closer to a more comprehensive view of Hungary and the local way of living. Even if you don't move meanwhile, it is already kind of a travel.

Old Village of Hollókő and its surroundings

Hollókő in Nógrád County in Northern Hungary has been a UNESCO World Heritage site. This small village is sought out by tourists from all over the world, as this is currently the only Hungarian settlement whose residents still use the built environment as they did in the past century.

Hungarian Folk Traditions

Hungary has a very rich repository of folk traditions, whose heritage is well worth exploring. We’ll show you all that makes up the country’s fabulous folklore legacy.

While you are in the vicinity of Hajdúság, visit Hortobágy, where you can relax on the porch of the 300-year-old Hortobágy Inn and take in the enormous grassy steppe, while sampling the shepherds’ traditional dish of slambuc (a combination of pasta, potatoes and bacon).
