Minaret, Eger

Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
Inspirock Rating:
4/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web
A soaring structure dominating the skyline of Eger, Minaret remains one of the city's main claims to fame. In a town packed with landmark buildings, this structure rises above the surrounding area and reminds visitors of a time when Ottoman Turks ruled this part of Europe. Constructed in the 17th century, the minaret stands 40 m (130 ft) and offers unbeatable views of the city center. One of only three remaining minarets in all of Hungary, it draws huge crowds on a daily basis. If you don't like heights and tight spaces, see what the minaret looks like from the city's famous castle.

  • Amazing view! However, output and exit some scares. Personally a little bit scared to get on the "balcony" on a tower;) but need to overcome their medication and now i do not regret it:)

  • For the buck you can see a beautiful panorama of Eger. Attraction for the brave without fear or claustrophobia, because entrance, stay on the gòrze and descent belong to the slightly extreme:)

  • Magnificent monument. Although the "climb" is challenging it is worth climbing to the top to enjoy the view.
