Magyarlukafa

Tájház

Magyarlukafa is one of the smallest villages of Hungary (90 inhabitants). The village consists of one dead-end street abutting the forested hills and grasslands of the protected Zselic area.

There is one building of interest in Magyarlukafa: the Tájház (see picture above).
The Tájház was built at the beginning of the 19th century and is representative of the traditional houses of the region. It now houses an ethnographic museum.

But above all Magyarlukafa is well-known because of the annual Vendel-napi búcsú (celebration of the patron Saint Vendel) which takes place on the second to last Sunday of October. That day the ever so quiet village draws thousands of visitors.

In 2020 the Vendel-napi búcsú will not be celebrated because of the corona pandemic.
