Information about Eger

Eger is a great location when considering where to take a vacation.  It is the second largest city in Northern Hungary. The climate in Hungary is usually temperate with cold, cloudy, humid winters and warm summers. 

Eger is well-known for the Castle of Eger, historical structures, wonderfully relaxing thermal baths with beautiful scenery, culinary delights, as well as its various white and red wines. The Castle of Eger is a landmark that is famous for repelling the Turkish attack in 1552 during the period of the Siege of Eger.  It is an interesting site for tourists to visit due to its architectural construction and high walls.   

The castle contains several museums that include a wax museum, painting exhibit, history of the castle, arrangement of cellars beneath the castle, and ancient vase display.   Archbishop’s Garden is a park made available to the public in 1919.  It was built on the land that was previously a hunting ground. 

A few of the walls constructed by Bishop Esterhazy are still standing on the northern and western sides of the park.   The park includes a man-made lake with bridge, fountain, and areas to play sports.  Tourists also enjoy taking excursions to see the lovely wine vineyards while in Eger.  Restaurants in this region are fantastic with a great variety of food from which to choose.  Shopping is also plentiful for those guests who would like to bring home souvenirs of their memorable stays.  Please keep Eger in mind when planning your next vacation destination.
