Blacksmith's Workshop

Blacksmithing was one of the most valuable professions among the village trades, and it still holds great value in our small village. Here in the heart of Hollókő, you can meet our local blacksmith, who will help you experience firsthand both the challenges and the beauty of the craft!

In our 'Palóc Garden', you can also catch a glimpse of his spectacular work

Dreams woven into canvas...

Dowry Exhibition

The shuttle flew, the loom rattled under the diligent hands of the girls! The dowry of the maiden in the queue to be married was being made, which she would then take to her husband's house. Each pattern of the dowry holds within itself a dream of future happiness, love, and family...

Every element of the beautiful embroidery reflected the girl's emotions and thoughts, her taste and talent.

Discover what comprised a Palóc girl's dowry!


Everything that's handmade...

Folk Art Shop

We believe that the daily use of folk art products is also a continuation of the past.

Therefore, in the former 'clean' room of the Pajtakert building, we have set up our Folk Art Shop, where visitors can choose from the folk art products, textiles and embroideries of local and regional artists.

Visit us!

With the assistance of our local tour guides, you can discover the rich Palóc folk culture, traditions and customs

    We received a warm welcome. We really enjoyed the activities, especially the folk costume presentation where my partner and I were dressed up. The lángos was divine, the elderflower syrup was delicious, and the guided tour was professional. We will definitely come back!
