Many people believe that Eger is all about history and culture. Just take a look at the Eger Castle, which was defended by István Dobó in 1552 under the attack of the Turkish army, and where Géza Gárdonyi’s highly popular novel, entitled the “Eclipse of the Crescent Moon” takes place. Not that far from the castle stands the Minaret of Eger, which was the northernmost minaret from the former Ottoman Empire. The Eger Cathedral, several other churches and the Archbishop’s Palace reflect strong characteristics of religion, yet we have not even seen the labyrinth of the former Archbishop’s cellar system under the town.

HEALTH AND RECREATION
On top of culture, the town is rich in services that help treatments and support active and healthy lifestyle.
The Turkish Spa, the Thermal Spa and the Aladár Bitskey swimming pool are all tempting visitors to visit Eger not just for 1 or 2 days. What is more Eger is surrounded by a whole valley that is full of thermal water and spas.
We do not have to go too far to find nature either; just think of the Bükk Mountains, the Beehive rocks or the cave dwellings.
