Many people may ask: does the world really need another website about Sherlock Holmes? We, the editors of the site puzzled a lot over the idea too. But since our Hungarian Holmes site intrigued people who do not speak the language, it encouraged us to have an English version.
Of course the page does not want to act as a competitor opposite the countless Sherlock Holmes sites. Our sincere appreciation towards the hard work behind them. We will pay special heed to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the unique creator of Holmes and to his oeuvre. The Internet is accessible for many people. Our hope is to support the recognition of the real Sherlock with authentic information.
Holmes is the symbol of hope. We strongly believe that nowadays many people need the hope what his character represents.
We would like to deal with the Great Detective in a deeper and more comprehensive way. Our aim is to show the phenomenon of Holmes as detailed as possible with its numerous respects, and also would like to show the effects this character exerted on many aspects of life and arts. Sherlock has lots of cultural virtues - it is a feature of his we really love. We try to set a high standard with our articles.
Hopefully we delight Sherlockians, Holmesians and Sherlockology fans.
The life and works of Conan Doyle are not really known in Hungary. Most people are familiar with the Sherlock Holmes movie adaptations. We have limited possibilities to change this. Our team is very proud of the fact that the world famous Conan Doyle referred to Hungary several times. You can find some examples of mentioning Hungary in the Sherlock Holmes novels here: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Hungary
The topic of Sherlock Holmes is enormous, it takes lots of time to elaborate it. We do our best and we do hope that our visitors will always be delighted.
We do not intend to have a forum on the site. You can send your comments regarding the articles or the website using the following link: Contact
It is not among our plans to create a Facebook website for our page, and we are not present on any microblogs.
Artists and scientists gave their permission to publish the translation of their articles on our Hungarian site and the original versions on this page – this is an honour to us, and we would like to express our gratitude again herewith. Last, but not least, our special thanks to Mr. Aleš Kolodrubec, the president of the Czech Sherlock Holmes Society. We strongly needed his trust, generous help and support to take the first step on the long and tough road to become international.
(Our supporters: Special Thanks)
Kind regards: Revati and SherlockExtra
" My mind rebels at stagnation. Give me problems, give me work, give me the most abstruse cryptogram, or the most intricate analysis, and I am in my own proper atmosphere. But I abhor the dull routine of existence. I crave for mental exaltation. "

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote the canon. EVERYTHING else is fanfiction.
