Description

The picturesque World Heritage site village of Hollókő revives ancient folk customs associated with the arrival of spring. Visitors can admire wonderfully ornamented folk costumes, learn how to create the famous Hungarian painted Easter eggs, enjoy a robust folk dancing program, taste gastronomic specialties and shop at the folk-crafts fair. Ladies should watch out for roving bands of boys carrying buckets of water who carry out a long-standing tradition of "sprinkling" the girls in town with water. It is a unique glimpse into village life and traditions happening annually on Easter weekend.
