Holloko The Raven's Rock

The village of Holloko is a UNESCO world heritage site. Here the village houses and surrounding fields preserve the living traditions of the Paloc, a Hungarian people with a distinct ethnic identity: They were a Turkic-speaking nomadic people who settled in Hungary during the reign of King Lazlo in the 11th Century.

Towering abouve the village is the ruins of the ancient 13th-Century castle, with connections to King Lajos (Louis I) and King Lazlo (Ladislas I).  The Legend of Lazlo, rooted in ancient pre-Christian Magyar mythology, will be told here at the Raven's Rock Castle.
