Perched atop a hill overlooking Hollókő and its scenic surroundings, the medieval Castle of Hollókő stands as a historic fortress of immense cultural importance. Initially erected in the 13th century as a defensive bastion, it underwent numerous renovations and expansions over time, blending medieval defensive structures with Renaissance and Baroque architectural elements. Recognized for its cultural significance and well-preserved state, both the castle and the village of Hollókő were granted UNESCO World Heritage status in 1987.
