The first stop of our Eger sightseeing tour is the castle that has a rich historical legacy, and from where we can learn a great deal about the 16th century Hungary. The castle offers an awesome view of Dobó Square and the little streets of the city. The view is also amazing from the 40 metres tall Minaret, which is very close and was once attached to the Kethuda Mosque. 97 steps take us to the top of the minaret, but all of them worth the effort. After attending the tower, we visit the Lajos Kossuth Street, where we can observe the fascinating wrought-iron gates made by Henrik Fazola. Passing over the István Dobó Square, we enter one of the most significant temple in Hungary, the Eger cathedral and after that, we move over to the impressive late Baroque palace, the building of the Eger Lyceum. Our next stage is the former cellar system of the Archbishop of Eger, also known as ‘The Town Under the Town”, where we can enjoy a historical time travel with an actual time machine. The last stop of our tour is the Szépasszony-völgy, the home of the most important Eger wines. Here we can taste the world famous Egri Bikavér, and we can also have a nice wine dinner before departing home.
