The share of the Hungarian rural tourism within the tourism in Europe, is still insignificant, but the interest is increasing. More people realize that after overworking everyday, a metropolis or the beach are not necessarily suitable for recreation because they are contaminated and crowded. If we look at the other side, it is difficult to make a decision whether the villages, which start to organize, enhance the profitability of rural tourism. Tourism as a source of income has some contradictions; one of these is the seasonality. The earning potential runs for a few months, this fact is so stimulating, therefore, the hosts meet the real and putative needs of the guests. A few-day-long event that moves large masses and makes the name of the town known has a positive impact on visits for the rest of the year, as well. The nearly fifty towns, where Palóc people live, are located at the foot of the North Hungarian Mountains. The popularity of the still living traditions encourages the residents to preserven and care for their traditions. We see countless examples of this in Nógrád county. Some of these settlements are Hollókő, Kazár, Bánk, Mihálygerge among others. Strengthening the tourism may boost the economy of the county, as seen in other regions, subregions and other counties of the Hungary. The support of the local governments and entrepreneurs is essential. Nógrád, although the in size the second smallest county Hungary, yet is full of amazing natural formations, historic monuments, and attractive events for visitors. We intended to demonstrate the positive and negative sides of rural tourism. We used the example of Nógrád county.
