Magyarpolány

Country House and House of Arts and Crafts

With its traditional, whitewashed peasant houses and well-kept streets, this small village hiding in the Bakony Hills simply makes you stop here. The Country House, where you can visit an exhibition presenting local costumes and lifestyles as well as a pottery and weaving workshop, is one of the most typical monuments of the settlement. The building is also used as a House of Arts and Crafts, enabling children and adults having an affection for creating something to try several crafts: including pottery and graphic workshops, stable theatre, smithy, wood carving shed and drawing room. During the Polány Whitsun Weeks, permanent and temporary exhibitions provide excellent opportunities for entertainment. The open-air stage in the yard of the Country House serves as a great venue for varied and colourful cultural performances in summer.

Opening hours: pre-registration required.

Rural Peasant Houses in the Bakony Hills

If you long for some peace in the midst of programmes and events, just take a walk along Petőfi Sándor Street which is listed as part of our national heritage: it is lined with long stone houses exhibiting many features characteristic of the rural architecture of the Bakony Hills: they have arched porches, hand rails and columns. The village was given the ‘Europe Nostra Award’ in 1993 for the renovation and maintenance of heritage-listed houses.

Opening hours: during events.
