The site of the famous defeat of 1552, known as the Siege of Eger, Eger Castle currently serves as a museum and provides a great view of the city from its hilltop location. During the Siege of Eger, a small Hungarian army of 2,000 people, including women and children, defeated the Turkish army of 80,000 soldiers. The castle was later captured by the Turks, who proceeded to rule it for almost a century. Take a guided tour of the castle to learn more about its role in the country's history.

  • Great view over the city. Lovely place. It is not a boring viewing spot. However on a hot summer day might be challenging. You are in full sun unless you take a shelter of the restaurants.
  • Great exhibitions for 21. century needs, I was absolutely satisfied. Many places are closed now due to renovations, but I still spent here 2.5 hrs. Recommend (text in English like 60% of the time)
