Eger Castle - Review

A structure that is reminiscence of Mongal invasion in the 13th century, the castle that stands today is a modern reconstruction. Although, the foundations of the 12th century St. John’s Cathedral are still visible on the eastern side of the complex.

The Istavn Dobo Museum housed in former Bishop’s Palace which dates back to late 15th century explains the history of this magnificent castle. There are many models and drawings worth observing. The Eger Art Gallery displays works of Canaletto and Ceruti. Walk down the Istvan Dobo Museum, the iconic statue of Dobo stands proudly. The terrace of renovated Dobo Bastion constructed in sixteen century collapsed in 1976 but was rebuilt and offers panoramic views of Eger.

Visit the Panoptikum, enjoy a 3D film or just wander in the premises of Eger castle; you will have a good time for sure!

  • Great place to visit. A must see if you are in Eger. This castle is famous due to a heroic victory of 2000 Hungarian soldiers who defended the castle attacked by tens of thousands of Turks. Except of well remained castle you can see exhibitions about the famous victory and the castle itself offers excellent spot for sightseeing of the city of Eger which lies down below the castle.
