Torok Kori Minaret, Eger

3.9
A soaring structure dominating the skyline of Eger, Torok Kori 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.

  • Just in passing we looked at, but it is very spectacular, and great big, too bad that little time was it. ...

  • It is worth seeing even if from the outside. Us failed to go inside since renovation on the outside and the inside. The minaret was probably already so inclined, that he began to cultivate and secured before pushing the.

  • Located to the West of Eger Castle. Climb climb when it comes to exciting, but, under construction, was very disappointing. Looks like rocket because of the construction, and so remains in the impression. It is recommended because it is difficult to take a panoramic view of the minarets from nearby, from the Eger castle can be seen to take pictures in there.

  • Really cool. It is really tall . Kind of scary. But still cool.
  • On the top is perfect view to the whole Eger. But you need to face with many stairs in very, very narrow staircase, so this "journey" is definitely not for claustrophobic or overweight people.
  • Pretty but closed (again)with boarding around it so not much to see.
  • A nice experience with the really tight staircase and the great view of the city and the surrounding hills. A place you shouldnt miss unless you are afraid of heights
  • Amazing experience, worth the wait. The staircase is extremely narrow, steep and dark, so only go up if you are not claustrophobic & adventurous. Up in the tower there is not a lot of space either, don't even try it if you have the fear of heights.
